MT SHASTA BACKPACKER MAG: SFS Climb 2017
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2017
FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: May 07, 2017
We’re excited to partner with Backpacker Magazine again this year to offer exciting trips in California. 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.
How does it work?
You pay a non-refundable registration fee & agree to fundraise $3,500 to climb Mount Shasta. BCM pays your guide fee of $650 (of course you can donate an additional $400 if you want all the funds you raise to go to BCM!) Then you fundraise up to your goal & spread the word about BCM, and go on an awesome climb!
For more information on this trip, including the equipment you need, the itinerary, and more, please see the Mount Shasta page on the Big City Mountaineers' website.
