Join Veterans Expeditions as we climb Mt. Shasta in Northern California. You must be able to provide your own gear/rent gear (ice axe and crampons).
Mt Shasta (via Avalanche Gulch) is a long climb, about 10 miles round trip and 7000′ of elevation gain split up over two days. On the first day (June 8th) we walk for a little under 4 hours, gaining about 3000′ of elevation before setting up camp at Lake Helen at 10400′. The second day (June 9th) is a classic ‘alpine start’ with a wakeup of around 1am and if everything goes well (and weather permitting) we should reach the summit in the early morning. This is a great entryway for anyone looking to gain experience in the mountains. However, fitness and experience backpacking, camping, or hiking are very helpful.
