A buddy and I climbed Shasta via Casaval and a delluded west face detour on Friday 5/12. Great climbing conditions, fun but pretty crappy riding conditions. At 1pm it was still rock hard on misery hill and too hard high on avi gulch.

We skinned up a ways toward Casaval, but certainly carried out splits on our backs more than we skinned. (Since my bro doesn’t have split crampons i left mine in the car. I’m sure we could have skinned much higher with them.)

There is a ton of snow on the mountain. Although a little less in the west face/hidden locales.
