Climb Mt. Shasta, a beautiful volcano in the Cascade range, standing tall at 14,179 feet. The Avalanche Gulch route used for this climb can be a great introduction to mountaineering for beginner mountaineers who are in good physical condition. Your guides will teach you the skills necessary for your climb and provide the group gear.
This is a 2 day guided climb where you will learn skills such as snow camping, snow walking techniques, roping up, self arrest, and more along the way.
Whether this is your first 14er or your first glaciated climb, you are sure to get a taste of mountaineering with a hike to basecamp, followed by an early alpine start on the following day and push to the summit, before descending down the mountain.
This climb is led by the SWS Mountain guides who hold the permits to operate on Shasta-Trinity National Forest and operates on a non-discriminatory basis.

It’s brings focus, commitment, trust, presence. I am at peace when climbing, totally immersed on the task at hand. The experience brings a feeling of accomplishment and yet a humble grounding to earth. It helps put the grand scheme into perspective and creates a human connection with your partners you don’t find everywhere.” Wilderness First Responder Avalanche Level 1 & Rescue Clinic AMGA SPI course, AMGA Alpine Guide Course AMGA Rock Guide Course
