Trip Overview

For over 15 years, we have been going to the summit of Mount Shasta. With over 50+ summits, your guide Shane knows Shasta! Join us and let Shane show you firsthand the difference a personally guided trip makes!

This 2-day trip is an accelerated version of our 3-day trip. We’ll go to the summit of Mount Shasta via the standard Avalanche Gulch route. This accelerated 2-day trip is ideal for climbers with great physical fitness or previous mountaineering experience who want to summit Mt Shasta with a guide. We’ll still spend the afternoon of our first day reviewing the basic mountaineering skills with ice axe and crampons.

  • All your mountaineering and overnight gear is included, except mountaineering boots and clothing. This includes sleeping bag, headlamp, crampons, ice axe, climbing harness, and more! You can rent mountain boots from the 5th Season gear shop in Mt Shasta City.
  • All group camping equipment is included; such as tents and stoves. 
  • All breakfasts and dinners are included while on the mountain and prepared for you by your guide. 
  • Mt. Shasta Summit Passes and Wilderness Permits are also included. 
  • Human waste pack out bags are also included. They are mandatory to use in the Mt Shasta Wilderness Area.
