I am now promising myself that I am going to start blogging a lot more. Its kind of like a catharsis.
As I mentioned in my last post, from February, this is my do over year. This weekend is my first chance at making last year right. Last season, Mark and I attempted to climb Mt Shasta via the Casaval Ridge route, a route, our guide informed us, that "10s of people climb a year." But, no summit do to snow conditions. This year, in a fit of brilliance, we've decided to climb the more standard route, Avalanche Gulch, and do it in two days. Day 1 up to a high camp, wake up at 12 am, climb at 1, summit, return to camp, break camp down, hike all the way out, and drive home 6 hours to Portland. I have been exercising a ton so its now time to see if it will pay off!
