California Fourteener Initiative
Ascent all California’s 14,000 ft. Peaks
2-4 days / 1-3 nights / Cost: $645.00 to $895.00
With 14 mountains over 14,000 ft. California has one of the largest concentrations of high peaks in the country. These mountains make up what is considered some of the most classic alpine climbs in the world. Though some are not technically hard all are physically demanding, and all are worth the effort. From the rocky slopes of Mt Langley, to the mixed ice and snow of the North Palisade and largest glaciers of Mt Shasta, California has it all.
SWS Mountain Guides climbs them all and so can you!
As one of only two companies permitted to guide all of California’s 14,000 ft. peaks we offer the “Fourteener Initiative”.
