Mt. Shasta is the second highest volcano in the United States, and its base is more than 17 miles in diameter. Considered a major peak of the Cascade mountain ranges; this magnificent mountain lures people from all over the world as a premier climbing destination. Located in northern California, this beautiful mountain rises high above the rugged peaks around it to provide climbers with breathtaking views. Eight superb glaciers, California’s largest, adorn its flanks and are complemented by splendid meadows of wildflowers and groves of Shasta Red Firs. We climb the non-technical Avalanche Gulch route, so climbing Shasta is within reach for any individuals who are in good physical condition and mentally prepared and determined to adapt their skills to the varied environment.
