The team woke up early, ate breakfast and departed in rope teams of about five climbers plus guides for the summit attempt via Mt. Shasta's west face. Our guides have reported that everyone is doing well, and the weather is a bit windy and chilly.
They will climb from Hidden Valley base camp (9,400 feet) and up the West Face. (see Mt. Shasta map below).
Not everyone on the Climb Against the Odds team will summit Mt. Shasta. The journey is a team effort to help each other up the mountain, and part of the process of putting one foot in front of the other to reach the ultimate goal: preventing breast cancer.
