      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!

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.
