This is a line which ascends a ridge next to Avalanche Gulch, the most climbed route on the mountain. We'll likely descend Avalanche Gulch, which has one of the classic glissades in the NW - plan on it if conditions are good. Weather and fitness are often the deciding factors of success on Shasta. If you want to tune up for Rainier, this is a good choice and often has better and more predictable weather.
