Maybe next weekend. Anyone interested , looks like I dont have any shasta taker, so this is my fallback plan June 30, 2006 at 4:54 pm #589600 Ecobrad 2068 Posts P420- Last year I went about this time of year and the sun cups were almost to the summits/ridges. We’re talking a couple hundred feet of good vert max. Flintys and GPS didn’t soften up till 2 or 3 as well. With that said, I’ll check my calendar (wife). June 30, 2006 at 5:07 pm #589601 TEX 2486 Posts I figured the cups were getting big. I hit up “s” this time last year and it was pretty good. I was hoping the lake shuttle would be running and it would be easy to get up to greensmoke. Hopefully some of the more narrow stuff will be shaded better and be in better shape. June 30, 2006 at 5:33 pm #589602 Ecobrad 2068 Posts I took the shuttle last year and booted up Greensmoke to the plateau and then hiked over to the top of Flintys. Nice day but the shuttle lagged. Did you boot up s last year? June 30, 2006 at 5:46 pm #589603 TEX 2486 Posts Yeah, me and Dave took mountain bikes around the lake. The boat wasnt running at the time June 30, 2006 at 5:58 pm #589604 Ecobrad 2068 Posts What day are you planning to ride? June 30, 2006 at 6:46 pm #589605 TEX 2486 Posts Saturday or sunday , or saturday and sunday June 30, 2006 at 7:17 pm #589606 powderjunkie 1669 Posts Saw some pics from gimpy and joesnow on BCR’s shasta TR on TGR of the Conness basin. Big suncups, but up on the glacier and chutes it looks pretty good still. June 30, 2006 at 8:23 pm #589607 TEX 2486 Posts Thanks for the info PJ. After looking at that , I do want the boat and road to be open. I will check during next week. June 30, 2006 at 9:24 pm #589608 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Cool, I’ll report back soon. I know I’ll only get one day in though. Prolly sleep in the lake parking lot or something in order to get an early start.
