When Josiah Whitney climbed Mount Shasta

This is the greatest account of climbing Mount Shasta I've ever read: September 12, 1862: Mount Shasta.

When I climbed Mount Shasta, not only was I 17 years old, and had crampons and an ice ax, but we got to climb it on a clear, sunny day in early August.

The description of descending at dusk through the snowstorm is thrilling!
