California Adventure District Climbing Mt Shasta

Climbing Mount Shasta

2 – 4 Days

It’s an incredible thrill on many people’s bucket list, and for all, it is life changing.  The views from the top are breathtaking, and getting up and down the mountain is a two-day adventure.  Do not attempt to climb the mountain by yourself, as beautiful as it is, underestimating Mount Shasta has claimed at least 50 lives since 1928.

Challenge: 8,000 climbing permits are issued every year – only 50% make it to the top.
