Ascent Trip Report

Mount Shasta is the second highest peak in the Cascade Range, surpassed only by Mount Rainier which is just 249 feet taller. The mountain was real dry with only glacier ice providing water. In my opinion, a summer ascent is harder as you slide back every step due to the volcanic rock.
