About us

Welcome to Climbing Mt. Shasta! This blog provides climbers, skiers, snowboarders, and other visitors with hiking and climbing route advisories for the Mt. Shasta area and beyond. 

With over 12 years of experience working as Mt. Shasta rangers, we were dissatisfied with commercial expedition organizers’ engagement in the field of exploration, as well as the bias in media coverage of exploration, which disregarded the achievements of others. 

It was difficult to obtain materials and information for independent explorers who wished to climb Everest, explore the poles, and so on. We also wanted to offer a guide to those who accomplished things the hard way.

Climbing Mt. Shasta is involved in climbing, mountaineering, and hiking via skiing, mountaineering, snowboarding, and ice climbing. In addition, the site includes technical gear evaluations, book and film reviews, professional guidance, mountain pictures, and sport climbing contests.

The material on Climbing Mt. Shasta is free, but only for personal, non-commercial use. Climbing Mt. Shasta’s material may not be reproduced in any other website, magazine, brochure, book, or other forms.

Because of the nature of the alpine environment, the information is suggestive and subject to change.
