Description

Despite its wide appearance, Shasta is one of the best moderate routes at the crag. Head straight up two wide cracks enjoying varied movement throughout and excellent rests at the various horizontal breaks along the way.

Great confidence boost for anyone looking for beginner ish trad leads. Takes a plethora of gear and you can skip a number 5 by climbing up to the first horizontal crack on the left column for your first piece May 18, 2015

Very fun climb! Just getting more into trad lead and this one pushed my comfort zone just enough to make it really exciting but also a manageable and enjoyable climb. Highly recommend for newer leaders on crack climbs. As Daniel said, the #5 can be skipped by placing at the first horizontal break in the left column. I also opted for placing a #4 with a short runner in the crack on the right as my first piece to protect the moves up the horizontal break, as a fall low would be pretty gnarly here. Nov 13, 2017

Shasta now has an independent anchor and climbers should no longer use the anchor on the right. (save that one for anyone doing Lively Up Yourself) Instead continue straight up and locate a two bolt anchor above a small foot ledge. Oct 22, 2018
