From a the trailhead at Bunny Flat, we'll spend 2 nights out in an attempt to climb Sargent's Ridge. Though the calendar says this is the first weekend of spring, we'll need to be ready for possible full winter conditions. High winds and cold temperatures are the norm on Shasta, so winter snow camping experience is expected. Ice axe and crampons required, with possible steep snow slopes to traverse or climb. No rope.

Ama DablamAma Dablam is one of the most recognizable mountains in the world. Its picture is featured in many calendars, books about Nepal and it's even a symbol of one of the major investment companies. At 6,812 metres (22,349 feet) it towers over the trekkers going to Everest Base Camp. It adds to the
mountain's allure that there is no real easy way to the summit -
the easiest route contains exposed 5.7+ sections above 19,000 ft and high angle
