      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Shasta - Memorial Day wkend

Recommended Posts

Looking for some climbing buddies to head down to Shasta this Memorial Day weekend from Portland. Would drive down early Saturday 23rd, hike into camp that afternoon, and summit next day via Cascade Gulch. Tried this before and the timing worked out well, last time we headed back Sunday night, but could extend into Monday as well.

 

I'm in great shape and have done Hood & Adams (s.side both) a bunch, but my technical skills aren't quite honed, so Cascade Gulch seems like a good route (but I'm up for suggestions). I'm prepping for an "expedition seminar" on Rainier in late June and need to get my climbing on.

Hey! I am headed down to Shasta, leaving town friday night, making it more of a road trip, looking to climb on Sunday, ski descent and head back Monday. Wouldn't mind some company for the climb, though I think it'll be a zoo..

Just an fyi, Cascade Gulch crosses the upper Whitney Glacier. So if your "technical skills aren't quite honed", you might be better off on Avalanche Gulch (maybe that's what you meant) or the West Face.

scottb, thanks for the clarification - i re-checked the route and i meant to say WF gully, not CG. It's the route just to the left of Casaval Ridge that I tried before and would like to do again.

 

Wheepickle, i'll PM you and maybe we can meet up for the ascent at least, as I won't be doing any skiing.
