Summit for Someone: Women's Mt. Shasta Climb

Join Big City Mountaineers for a Charity Climb up Mt. Shasta!

Every year, Summit for Someone climbers join together to ascend some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains to improve the lives of under-served youth. The vital funding that is raised through Summit for Someone makes it possible for Big City Mountaineers to deliver transformational wilderness mentoring expeditions to urban youth across the country in need of positive adult guidance in challenging and restorative environments. Join Backpacker Magazine for a Women’s climb of Mt. Shasta. Mt. Shasta is a great challenge for beginner and experienced climbers alike. The snow-covered West Face is an ideal route for learning ice axe and crampon skills, and instructors from Shasta Mountain Guides will make sure everyone is prepared. Over the three-day climb we’ll set up a basecamp in remote Hidden Valley, where we’ll stage our (hopefully!) successful summit bid. The route offers a much less crowded way of reaching this very popular peak, with spectacular vistas the entire way.
