green butte sargents ridge


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had beta on the green butte to sargents ridge route. I am planning on heading to shasta on thursday and can't find any useful info on this route. Some guide books say you should bring a rope and and others say a belay might be needed in spots. What should I bring for this route?

I recall going through the same quandry about four years ago....under ideal conditions--firm, well frozen snow--I never felt the need for a rope or belay. I remember a very short section of 4th class rock over steep, exposed snow as the only place where some folks might want a rope. A fun route to a nice summit. The first time I tried it the jet stream dropped down above Shasta---never seen winds like that; two guys in their brand new North Farce tent were picked up like a hovercraft.
