      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!

Just saw this thread...sorry it didn't work out for you! Shasta is a beautiful, gentle, giant of a mountain. It's my favorite of the Cascades, and I've climbed most of 'em.

 

Rainier is a great challenge, but Shasta, if you get off the Avy Gulch, isn't to be underestimated. And there are some cool glaciers on it as well....the Whitney, for one. Hotlum and Bolam as well.... I'm with you on the skiing thing....enjoy the quiet and the solitude....no rush. Hope you're able to get up there next year...I'm planning to climb Casaval Ridge in Winter or Spring, but wouldn't recommend that as your first ascent.....good luck!

I'm going to be around the sac/tahoe area the first half of october and I'm considering driving up to shasta and hiking the avy gulch.

 

I wasn't planning on bringing all of my snowboard gear with me, but am I going to want crampons? Would carrying just an ice ax and hiking in trail runners be alright?
