March 15-16, 2014, Mt. Shasta, Adventure Weekend
« on: 03/17/14, 08:46 PM »

Mt. Shasta is in California, but we can't let a little thing like geography stop us from finding adventure. So over the weekend I headed down to Cali with a few fellow-crazies to try and summit another 14'er.

We did not summit, but my tutu and I were nearly blown off the mountain! I should also mention: 70-degree temps, overnight freeze fest, icefall, and epic windburn.

Here is the full report.

I don't always travel out of state to go somewhere with awesome scenery, but when I do my stupid iphone locks up.  My only two photos to contribute are below.

It should get an honorary mention that I was still sick during all of this, blowing my nose and coughing up phlegm.  Needless to say I slept in a bivy.  Since the ladies had both also been sick in the last two weeks our germs combined to form gonaherphasyphilaids.  There is only one know cure for gonaheprhasyphilaids, MORE BOILERPLATE ICE!  We were in exactly the right place at exactly the right time.

Way to rip it up on the shine pow! At least the weather looked nice out (minus the wind of course)!

PS: The file names on N's photos; awesome
