Mount Shasta Hotlum Bolam ridge 3-day ascent

Mount Shasta Hotlum Bolam ridge 3-day ascent | undefined

Our team of certified mountain guides wants to take you to the top of Mount Shasta, one of the largest volcanoes in the continental United States.

Cascade Range

3 Days

Mar - Sep




Mount Shasta is a potentially active volcano located in Siskiyou County, California. It has a volume of about 85 cubic miles (350 km3), which makes it the most voluminous stratovolcano in the Cascade Range. Mountaineers from all over the world come here to climb this peak. In this 3-day tour we will get to its summit via the Hotlum Bolam ridge.

The Hotlum-Bolam Ridge is the perfect route for intermediate mountaineers and is probably the most popular alternative to Avalanche Gulch during the summer. We will find comfortable and scenic camping options, and enjoy amazing views of the Bolam and Hotlum glaciers, and the Shasta Valley.

Mount Shasta is home to several glaciers such as Whitney, the longest in the state, reaching a length of about 2 miles. Hotlum is the biggest in terms of volume and surface area. While climbing this imposing peak, you will enjoy a beautiful natural scenery.

Mount Shasta’s geological activity provides some additional mystique to this trip. The most recent eruption was in 1786, but volcanic gases seep from the summit indicating a still hot system.

So, if you are up for this amazing tour in Mount Shasta, get in touch with us! We’ll guide you and your friends to the summit of this imposing peak!

This trip will be operated by one of the 3 permit holder outfitters: Shasta Mountain Guides, Alpine Skills International and SWS Mountain Guides.

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
