Description

Mt. Shasta is California’s premier, stand-alone, 14,000-foot mountain—with the largest and longest glaciers in the state. Along with Washington’s Mt. Rainier, Mt. Shasta is one of the two most prominent large mountains in the contiguous United States. Shasta is sought after by so many climbers and skiers nationwide because it offers such a wide variety of routes, especially moderate ones for the aspiring mountaineer and backcountry skier.

The fully updated fourth edition of Mt. Shasta, by Andy Selters and Michael Zanger, is the most comprehensive and detailed guide and overview to a large, varied, historic, and coveted mountain for climbing and skiing. The guide offers extensive detail on dozens of trips both on the mountain and in its surroundings, including weather, climbing and skiing conditions, amenities, and history. A special extra is a guide to Shasta’s superb circumnavigation at timberline, pioneered by John Muir, that is often referred to as one of the best off-trail hikes in the Northwest. The book also comes with a topographic map showing all mountain routes and variations.

Andy Selters:
A proud Jersey girl at heart, Natalie Pompilio has embraced almost everything Philadelphia. (She’ll never give up her New York sports teams, though!) She loves soft pretzels with mustard, cobblestone streets, her row house home and neighbors, streets so narrow a car can’t pass, the hammocks at Spruce Street Harbor Park, and the singing fountain on Passyunk Avenue. Her favorite way to travel the city is using the Indego bike share. Inspired by muralist Isaiah Zagar, she has completed multiple mosaics in her neighborhood with the blessing of property owners. She loves reading above most things and is a frequent visitor to the Charles Santoro branch of the Philadelphia Free Library system. If she’s not in Philadelphia, you’ll probably find her in New Orleans, where she rides with the Krewe of Muses during Carnival season. She’s crafty—not in the way the Beastie Boys sang about, but in the way that she could probably build you a house with a hot-glue gun.
