North America, United States, Sierra Nevada of California, Mount Shasta

Mount Shasta. In the course of a study of the glaciers on the north side of the mountain in September, a party led by Norman Clyde and composed of Oliver Kehrlein, Wm. Horsfall, C. S. French, Charles Reid, Thom. Hunt, Howard Sills, and Kirkwood Bourett reached the summit by a new route up the Hotlun Glacier. Earlier in the summer, on July 3rd, there was the unusual occurrence of a fatal accident on this mountain when Sydney Schlesinger, a member of the Sierra Club, slipped and fell on to the hard surface of a snowfield and slid some 2000 ft., striking several rocks on the way. He died soon after the fall.
