Vantage Point: Misery Hill

Caption: Thumb Rock

PhotoDescr: The photo was taken en-route to the summit of Mt. Shasta via standard Avalanche Gulch. Two of us have climbed Mt. Shasta once before. This time we came for the "winter" ascent to test our gears for the upcoming Alaska expedition. Despite it was in the middle of winter, the summit had only -2C air and -8C snow. Quite unexpectedly, for such an "easy" non-technical route, we had three close calls, one pretty serious (only luck saved the day).
