green butte ridge


Recommended Posts

Climber Green butte on February 2nd. Perfect day as far as snow conditions go. The weather had been sunny for close to a month, and this was the first cold spell, so solid base.

Began the climb at 3:30 from bunny flats. Reached arete at the old ski bowl at around 7:30. Winds began to howl. 80mph. Solo, but kept moving on. Front pointing around pinnacles breaking the arete. About half way up to sargents winds became too much, and turned back. Great mountian, but so large in comparison to surroundings, it feed on storms. High winds. fruit.gifbigdrink.gif

When I went through that way about a month ago The snow looked thin on the west side of the mountain but pretty good elsewhere. I was looking from down in town though. All the news reports say snow levels are above normal for that part of the state. Black Bear Diner is the reataurant. There is one in Mount Shasta City.
