CMC Members,


Mount Shasta climb next Saturday!



August 8th  (Rescheduled)                 Saturday                    Mt.
Shasta: Clear Creek Day-hike

Whether one considers it a climb or a strenuous hike, the Clear Creek
<http://www.summitpost.org/clear-creek/157378>  route on Mt. Shasta offers
the easiest route to the summit.  While technically the 'easiest' route to
the summit, one still has to earn it over 7,600 feet of gain and an
approximate one-way mileage between 7-8 miles (an overview of the route can
be viewed here
st_large.jpg> ).  Current conditions make this an ascent that requires
neither an ice axe or crampons.  The climb/hike would begin at 03:00 with
the goal to summit before noon.  Updated conditions for Mt Shasta can be
found at Shastaavalanche.org <http://shastaavalanche.org/> , and the roads
to the Clear Creek trailhead suffered washout damage on 7/20
torm-damage> .  As such it is strongly recommended that a high clearance
and/or 4-wheel drive vehicle be used to access the trailhead.  Send an email
with experience/conditioning to chris.jakober at gmail.com.
