Shasta Summit Climb 1 Day

This single push summit of Mount Shasta is a massive undertaking. We'll climb and descend 7,000 vertical feet in a continuous push to get up and back to the trailhead without camping or taking breaks longer than 15 minutes, with an exception for a longer stop on the summit. This climb is not for the unfit or the weak of heart: it will test your limits as a mountaineer.

This single push summit of Mount Shasta is a massive undertaking.  We'll climb and descend 7,000 vertical feet in a continuous push to get up and back to the trailhead without camping or taking breaks longer than 15 minutes, with an exception for a longer stop on the summit.  This climb is not for the unfit or the weak of heart: it will test your limits as a mountaineer.  This climb requires superb fitness, a solid understanding and proficiency with mountaineering efficiency and safety skills and a fast and light equipment kit.  Your guide will set a minimum reasonable pace to complete the climb in a single push, but going slow is not an option on this climb.  Going too slow will necessitate turning the climb around.  This program is offered exclusively as a private program with a maximum climber to guide ratio of 2:1.

Route options include: Avalanche Gulch, West Face, Brewer Creek, Clear Creek.
