Not a ton of info except for bad conditions causing multiple different falls including the death of a guide.

One of our friends was on Shasta May 26-30 and they lost their tents on the 27th and had to regroup then take a different route up the mountain. They were able to summit on May 30th, but it was not an easy trip. Happy they made it safe up and down the mountain.
