Hotlum Glacier Route

Hotlum Glacier Route

This is a great climbing route on the mountain.

It is in great shape right now and will most likely hold throughout the summer months.

Snow is still smooth and delightful for skiing from 9,000 ft. and above.

From the trailhead, it is about a 45 minute boot up before reaching continuous snow.

This beautiful waterfall is located over on the east side of Mt. Shasta. It can either be reached by going over to the Brewer Creek Trailhead and traversing over or following a bunch of logging roads and hoping for the best!

This rock holding sacred petroglyphs on the mountain is a very special area. It was shown to me many years ago and I was told it holds three generations of carvings from one of the local Native American Tribes of this area.
