More info about Mountain Climbing in United States:

Mount Shasta, in the Cascades, is a great climb. It sits at 4,321 meters and is one of the largest stratovolcanoes in the world. Neighbouring Mount Hood at 3,429 meters is also a good option and is not too difficult to climb. Mount Ranier is the tallest mountain in the Cascade range and not an easy climb. It’s worth it for the 360-degree views of the Cascades though. On the other side of the country, you’ll find Mount Washington, a challenging climb with challenging weather conditions. And if you’re really after a challenge, there’s Mount Denali in Alaska, the tallest mountain in North America and the third most prominent in the world.
