The glaciers on the mountain are firm and several crevasses have opened up. This glacier does not host much for an icefall and also does not have many crevasses. That said, don't let your guard down. The Bolam Glacier is small and not often traveled. It offers peace and solitude and is another great route on Mt Shasta offering amazing views of Shastina and the Shasta Valley. Feel free to call the climbing rangers for specific questions. Many variations exist for this route.
