So Cal Mt. Shasta Hotlum Bolam Ridge

  • to

  • No location was chosen

  • SoCal Mt Shasta Expedition via Hotlum-Bolam Ridge.  This year the club has reserved a climb of Mt Shasta exclusively for SoCal members. The Hotlam Bolam Ridge is a fantastic ascent - a route that threads a high line straight up between two impressive glaciers and tops out right on the summit ridge. This is considered to be an intermediate climb with altitude, some steep snow and icy rocks, but does not require roping up or crevasse rescue skills.  Trip limited to 8 climbers. SoCal folks are welcome to join the interest list on the SMC website - not Meetup - and this event is rated SIG 1, MTN 1. For current SoCal SMC members only. Not a member yet? Join here.



    For more information or questions, please contact the listed event leaders, or Darren Shutt, Mountaineering Director at [masked], (916)[masked] or Phil Montanes, Managing Director (916)[masked]

    A reviewer on yelp regarding the Castle Crags State Park campground states that, "The trains and other highway sounds echo throughout the night." Maybe bring some ear-plugs if the group decides to car-camp there Friday night.

    Hi all, I just sent out an email regarding tents, stoves, carpooling, expenses, and loaner gear. Post your replies on this message board.

      Hi Damian, I know Trango2 is the best choice to keep if I can always find 2 other people to split carrying it. That's what I learned from Mihai. Thx.

    Hi all, I have a 2p 4-season tent, a 2p 3-season tent and a Jetboil with pots and pans. Excited for this road trip; looking forward to seeing you guys again and meeting the rest of the crew!

      Damian- Forgot to mention, I can meet anywhere. Is this the Newhall location you have in mind?­ If so that definitely works for me!

      There are three park and rides in Newhall and the one you mentioned is the smallest of those, I'll call the City of Santa Clarity to see which one will be most promising one for us. For a listing of the park and rides: http://www.santaclari...­

    Hey interested folks, be sure to mark yourself as interested on the SMC webpage since that is the site I have to use to officially RSVP folks (the Meetup page is just used as a chat forum):
