Shasta Solo - 22nd summit

It's tough to argue with 9,000 ft ski descent followed by a 3,000ft mountain bike descent even if it requires not sleeping, driving 8 hours, and listening to 2 audiobooks.  Here's the vid of the successful day, which involved:
  • midnight - woke up (got a good 2 hours)
  • 1 am - packed, ate, took off from Oakland.
  • 5:30 am - started hiking from Bunny Flat
  • 11:30 am - summit, then skied down Wintun glacier
  • 1:30 pm - back up to the summit, skied down Whitney Glacier -> West Face
  • 3 pm - back at the car
  • 3:30 pm - found a guy to drive the car down, and started biking
  • 4:45 pm - back at the car
  • 9 pm - back home

Angel Wings... skied that last year.  B & Scott went and hit it a few days after I took this pic. 

This hit the SPOT...
Sierra Butte
back in the bay for sunset.
Also, I added a "page" to my blog about doing Shasta.  So you should see that on the blog now.
