Shasta Summit Climb 3 Day

A three day, two night mountaineering expedition on the largest volcano in the Cascade Range: Mount Shasta! We hike to camp, where we'll teach a thorough snow school to build efficiency and safety techniques needed to climb Shasta with a guide. The next day, we'll get a predawn "alpine" start to attempt the summit and descend back to camp. After a hot dinner we'll get a full night's sleep before packing up camp and returning to the trailhead on day 3. The 3 Day program is perfect for most climbers and provides a more thorough snow school and much needed rest after the long summit day. All participants on this program should be in excellent mountain fitness.
