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.
Prior to your climb, on a pre-determined date, you will do a snowskills course with guides who will teach you the skills necessary for your climb covering skills such as selecting clothing and equipment for a snow climb, how to walk in balance with an ice axe, traversing a slope, kicking steps, self arrest techniques, plunge stepping, glissading, assessing snow conditions and crampon use.
Then you will climb this mountain under the guidance of your guides over 2 days and learn skills such as snow camping and practice snow walking techniques, roping up, self arrest and more along the way with the group gear provided by the guides.
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.
