Description

From Northgate Park follow the trail south to the base of the ridge. Continue up the ridge, easier in early season, to the top of the ridge at 12,000ft. Follow the path of least resistance, typically to the climber's right (west) to the plateau and work back left (east) to the summit. Take note of the large crevasse that forms on the Hotlum Glacier. Work well to the west of it on the descent.

Location

North face of Mt. Shasta from Northgate Park Trailhead.

Protection

Solo. Some parties may utilize a rope in early season.
