What a great freaking idea Tex!!!


No, credit goes to Swanny on that location

We will have to be careful about too many cars at the trailhead. We can find a central spot to park most cars and shuttle in

Snowvols- we wait only for the road to the trailhead melts out. Otherwise its too far to skin in

Shasta tends to be a shit show all the time, that is for climbing but not so much for riding. Car camping away from the trailheads is a nice idea so we do get the creature comforts like a somewhat warm bed, light packs, good food and beer! I agree with not going surrounding holiday weekends for the extra crowd factor and traffic. Lets hope the weather cooperates...

Dude it's a 14er, just climb the top 2-3k twice if you have too and give us the beta after the first descent ;-)



In fairness I am sure I would need them, but I just have to buy more stuff. :lol: Can I play the southern card for asking that question? What was I thinking?


LOL! I didn't mean that in regards to crampons Ice Axe, but yeah, you'll need them, I just meant you could climb it twice rather then go running before hand ;-)

I DO have an extra ice ax btw, but not crampons. 5th Season in Mt. Shasta rents both by the day too, so that's an option.


Last time I was in there they wouldn't rent me crampons because I had said I would be using them with snowboard boots. I thought that was pretty ridiculous. But maybe they just didn't like my roll.

Just a heads up.

This sounds like a killer event!

I am trying to make plans for this summer. Any news to this splitfest? I know it is still early but thinking it will be here before we know it.

Yes, there is news. We are having a splitfest at Shasta this summer. It will be on the east side starting from the Brewer Trailhead.

Date will be released when we know the road is open , or soon to open. That could be anywhere from late June to mid-july.

Untill then we can only wait.

you can keep checking in with Robin (aka telewoman) . She will be the one to put out the word on the road opening

Music to my ears, as the southern sierra look like they are ready for Labor Day already :nononno:

Anybody playing around on Lassen recently (conditions update most appreciated 8) )?

I wont be able to do the weekend of June 23rd. I can do any other weekend, just not that one. We will keep an eye on the road conditions as we get closer. I email Robin ( telewoman on ttips .com) and She says the snowpack on the east side is about normal so look for meltout late june-early july
