Hotlum-Bolam Route

Length:1 day
Dates:August 1-3, 2014

This three day trip on Mt. Shasta is offered on the more remote Hotlum-Bolum route. For folks who have some experience under their belt, this is a great climb combining glacier travel as well as some steeper climbing. After meeting on the first day, we will hike into an set up a camp high on the mountain at about 10,000 feet. On our second day we will  climb the mountain encountering steep snow as we head towards the summit. Following our return to high camp we will rest from our big summit attempt day and prepare for our hike out on day three.

Participants should have some previous experience with steep snow climbing, and be able to carry at least a 50 pound pack into our high camp. This is a great introduction to a 14,000′ peak with great access. If you are thinking about Mt. Rainier in the future, this would be an ideal warm up.

"I am very happy with my TMG experience. The guides were professional, personable, and extremely concerned about safety. . . I absolutely give highest marks to these guys. If you don't have much Alpine experience, or just want the security of seasoned veterans guiding you up this mountain, then I strongly recommend you sign up with them. Thanks, guys, for a great experience!!"

"What a fantastic experience gaining the summit of a mountain we've gazed on from Portland for 25 years! . . . We learned a great deal, had a ton of fun, felt in very capable hands, and had the reward of summiting on a beautiful clear day. The value of being with a professional, certified, guide and guiding organization was evident throughout. Kudos to the TMG team who were responsive, supportive, and fun to work with every step of the way."

"We booked 2-day overnight program on Mt. Hood with Timberline Mountain Guides. Our guides were great, . . super friendly and reputable. The program did not go as planned due to inclement weather but we still had fun and good experience. The guides were definitely flexible and provided guidance during the trip. I would recommend going with them if it's your first climbing trip on Mt. Hood for sure."
