Mount Shasta Climbing

The climbing rangers from the Mount Shasta wilderness area want to remind everyone that Mount Shasta is a world-class climbing challenge. Take steps to minimize accidents and injuries by knowing your route, conditions and the latest weather forecast. Have the proper gear, including an ice axe, crampons and a climbing helmet. More importantly, have the appropriate expertise to use this equipment. An essential skill for climbing Mount Shasta is the ability to stop a fall immediately with your ice axe. Practice with your gear in a less challenging environment or take a class from a qualified instructor. Climbers need to recognize they are visiting a wilderness area. There are no roads or trails. Help is likely hours away if you are in trouble. Please contact the Mount Shasta ranger station at 530-926-4511 and visit the Mount Shasta Avalanche Center website for more information.
