The Deal

  • $72 for a one-day Mount Shasta ice-ax clinic ($125 value)

During a six-hour clinic, students learn the basics of snow climbing on the slopes of Mount Shasta. Experienced guides teach important skills such as how to self-belay, self-arrest, and glissading. They also teach climbing with crampons using French and German techniques. The clinic provides students with the knowledge they need to safely ascend Mount Shasta. See upcoming class dates here.

SWS Mountain Guides

If climbing a mountain were a walk in the park, parks would be a lot more exciting. But climbing requires important safety knowledge, special equipment, and careful planning. That's why the folks at SWS Mountain Guides have set out to create an experience that allows all of their clients to focus on the climbing while they take care of the planning, equipment, and know-how it takes to make a journey great. Offering climbs on both Mount Shasta and Mount Whitney, adventurers learn about ice axes and crampons, basic mountaineering skills, and what to do in the event they discover a lonesome yeti. If local climbs aren't adventurous enough, SWS also organizes expeditions to Peru, Africa, and several of the world's highest peaks in Nepal.
