Mount Shasta Summer Ascent 3 Days
include full Ice Axe & Crampon Training
3 days / 2 night / Cost: $795.00
Our three-day, Mount Shasta, Introduction to Mountaineering course is a slower paced, skill intensive, instructional course in the basics of mountaineering which includes a summit climb via Mount Shasta Avalanche Gulch. No previous mountaineering experience is necessary. This course includes instruction and skill development taught by professional guides, complete ice ax, and crampon instruction, ice-ax self-arrest, route finding, mountain awareness, establishing a proper camp, and mountain safety. We designed this course in response to the request that more time spent on developing our client’s ice and crampon skills and thereby increasing their confidence with the gear higher up on the mountain. This course is highly recommended for those who have a desire to acquire the skills necessary to ascend Mount Shasta safely and confidently, and who wish to explore the world of alpine mountaineering. When compared to our Mount Shasta 2 Day climb this course includes an additional day for mountaineering skills instruction and as a bonus allows us to acclimatize better to the elevation! Climb Mt. Shasta at a slower rate and enjoy your time on the mountain. Give us a call!
