Mt. Shasta

14,279 ft.  – 3-4 days  – Trips available: February-May (2013 Calendar)


  • The West Face is an excellent climb that requires only 35 degree snow. It also makes use of the picturesque high camp at Hidden Valley. It summits via the well-known but harshly named Misery Hill.


  • Casaval Ridge is Mt. Shasta’s only Grade III climb, a spiny and exposed ridge that leads to the summit (see image below). Spring typically offers excellent snow conditions, allowing a descent via the easier Avalanche Gulch.
  • Hotlam-Bolam Ridge is a great late-Summer climb because of its North facing aspect. Expect steep snow and the occasional crevasse.
