This is a two segment event, Training and climbing
Mountaineering Clinic March 9-10
Would you like to learn SAFE mountaineering techniques from one of the masters. Here is a chance, Robert Link will conduct several sessions of mountaineering clinics out doors in the real world of mountains.
Classes will be conducted in the back country of Mount Shasta, for those who are interested they can winter (snow) camp on location.
Please contact Robert directly for complete details:
Mt. Shasta Climb March 10-11
I require avalanche transceiver, probe and snow shovel if you do not have them they can be rented in Shasta.
This is a winter climb and conditions could be very cold, windy and blusrty. Please attend this climb only if you are experienced in winter climbing.
The plan is to leave Bunny Flat Trailhead at 5:pm Sunday and camp on the mountain at about 9:pm, wake up call 2:00am Monday start climb at 3:00am summit 9:00-10:00am, arrive Bunny Flat 2:00-3:00pm, go for food and libations and sharing our experience then head back 10:00-11:00pm
If we do not get any participation till then the route will be Avalanche Gulch and the camp will be at Lake Helen. In case of new snow the route will be Casaval Ridge or TBD after consulting with the rangers.
I expect everyone to be of fit condition, do not complain if it is cold, rain, snow or windy. Respect your fellow climbers. Leave your ego at home. Always keep in visual or audio contact distance. Always be there to assist your fellow climber if needed. The last but not the least be prepared to abort the climb if conditions are not safe. And as always: THIS IS NOT A SUMMIT AT ALL COSTS.
