Shasta is doing better than the Sierra but not a ton better. April 5, 2013 at 6:12 am #667532 fustercluck 668 Posts Might try hitting it up (with Lassen) sometime between the 17th and 22ndish if there is a good weather window. Hoping to get in more than one trip this spring. If any of the usual (or not so usual) suspects wanna rally in a couple weeks, hit me up!

Probably some techy moderate ice climbing involved. http://goldenincalescent.blogspot.com/ April 11, 2013 at 12:30 pm #667534 TEX 2486 Posts How about May 17th weekend? Avalanche gulch route. Leave friday early am to drive up, start out early am saturday for the long climb. Top out saturday /or sunday Drive back sunday or monday? Who’s in? April 11, 2013 at 5:07 pm #667535 jbaysurfer 947 Posts I may be in the area for business..if so, I’ll be there. I like the H/W route though that PJ mentions. Guessing the road access opens much earlier this year, and conditions could be ripe for a 7k descent over there. 😉 Also, I’m down for whatever Lassen stuff.

Damn these warm temps, the season ain’t over yet! :headbang: April 11, 2013 at 8:10 pm #667537 TEX 2486 Posts Yeah Jbay, I would rather do the east side. Didnt know it would be possible to get to the brewer trailhead by then. That makes it even more tasty April 11, 2013 at 8:30 pm #667538 supermodel159 62 Posts SD to Shasta, what is that, like a 2 day drive? April 11, 2013 at 8:42 pm #667539 TEX 2486 Posts SD to Shasta, what is that, like a 2 day drive? 12 hours each way. Not a problem. Weather, splitters and a good date is the tough part April 11, 2013 at 9:54 pm #667540 Coon 43 Posts Theres 2 of us in SD that would definitely be down. More in OC if we need. April 12, 2013 at 4:48 am #667541 JB 14 Posts I’m in the ventura area, definitely would be down for a Shasta trip. Free between now and mid May any day and weekends after that.

If something comes about for a shredfest in May I could be into that, too. April 12, 2013 at 12:30 pm #667544 TEX 2486 Posts Looks like we got a Convoy.

Hes in L.A . but Im sure hewant to know. I can drive too. but lets cram the ride so we get less time behind the wheel April 12, 2013 at 1:39 pm #667545 BGnight 1382 Posts I’ll be making a few trips this spring up there for sure (jimw and I rode it April 2nd) but I won’t make plans more than a few days out as that mountain is very weather dependent for getting the goods. (I have that luxury due to location and profession) It’s super fat right now!….compared to the rest of CA April 12, 2013 at 3:52 pm #667546 TEX 2486 Posts Yeah BG, I wish I could go on more weekends, but I have a daughter getting married June 23rd and the family has a lot of things for me to do coming up.
