I climbed Shasta through the Hotlum Glacier. Splitboard was on my back all the way up because I went with a climber and he wanted to go directly through the glacier field. I carried an extra 12 pounds ( splitboard) . I was a true joy riding down as he walked, and walked , and walked. Only drag was I had to stop and wait for him every 1000-1500 feet.
