Overview

The massive and magnificent Mt Shasta is one of the best places to learn all the aspects of mountaineering and snow climbing. This three-day ascent of Mt. Shasta is the recommended climb for summit success, giving you ample time for personal skills instruction and a climb schedule to best suit the conditions. This is the classic summit expedition on Mt. Shasta, with much to offer to beginning mountaineers. The itinerary shown here is for the Avalanche Gulch route.

At the base camp you will set up camp, get a snack and another briefing from your guides on various snow climbing techniques including wearing crampons, ice axe use, rope travel, and self arrest.
