Ascent Trip ReportTraining for Mt Shasta. Just finished refreshing Wilderness First Aid. Got first patient less than 48 hours after class ended! Man fell and hit head with gaping would over eyebrow plus multiple abrasions/lacerations to face and knee, only an hour or so into my trip.
Left TH in afternoon, solo trip. First time using Hyperlite pack. Hurts iliac crests. Next day used fleece shirt to pad and was comfortable.
Camped at 10,550' (closed contour on map). Cold and windy. Packed up and carried all gear to summit in AM. Some consolidated snow on ground on summit approach. Cooked breakfast on top. Met John Dalum, 7 summits and both poles adventurer, and friend of Bill Burke. Packed out.
