Ascent Trip ReportParked at Bunny Flats, hiked to Horse camp then up the steps to Lake Helen and camped. Next morning we started a 6am and summited at noon. On the way down-at the bottom of the Redbank we climbed Thumb Rock. Got back to camp at 3pm and it was hot around 85 and no shade, inside the tent it was about 95, so we packed our gear and headed down, at horse camp we filled up with the best tasting spring water in the world.Then down to the car and the town of Mt Shasta for a good dinner.
