Shasta, an immense mountain mass soaring to over 11,000 feet above its surroundings, has long been a mecca for mountaineers, skiers, hikers, spiritualists and people inspired by great mountains. On 14,162-foot Mt. Shasta's lower slopes, hikers and nordic skiers find walks and tours among gothic forests and subalpine meadows, trips to finish in an hour or to last a week. On Shasta's upper slopes, climbers and ski mountaineers find routes from moderate to severe, many including travel on the largest glacier in California. For skiers, the book reveals quiet forest routes and divulges some of the little-known powder pockets. For climbers, the book describes virtually every route on the mountain, telling for each route what to look for and helping the prospective climber decide which route he or she is ready to try." Includes chapters on Water Activities, Mountain Biking, Flora and Fauna and Geology. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - small crease at top edge of rear cover - migrates into last few pages, small light stain on fore-edge of textblock.
