Mt Shasta Glacier Climb

Hotlum Bolam Route – 3 days / 2 nights

Mt Shasta Hotlum Bolam Glacier

Price per person


Our Mt Shasta Glacier Climb up the Holum Bolam is one of the best-glaciated routes on any 14er in California. Our 3-day guided ascent starts from Mt Shasta‘s Eastside and ascends up the second largest glacier in California. The route weaves through crevassed terrain and a series of 3 different ice falls circumventing Shasta’s Upper Headwall before heading towards the summit.Our Hotlum glacial route is an excellent adventure for climbers with previous ice ax, crampon, and mountain experience. An ideal climber for this trip should also be in very good to excellent physical condition and ideally have already climbed other snow and ice climbs before arriving at Mt Shasta.
