April 19, 2003. Daniel Krasner is up ahead in the Distance, with Whitney looming in front of us. We are just approaching Iceberg Lake at 12,600, which is around the corner on our right. From there, the Mountaineer's Route heads straight up what is the right hand side of the mountain in this photo.

That is one cliffy mountain! It sure deserves a 10 out of 10 vote!

Thanks! It looks very intimidating from this angle. The route we took veers around to the right and goes up in the snow.

Not on the way up. There's a bit of scrambling, but nothing really "cliffy". What's currently photo #6 in my images shows the route up.

Once you get to the top, there's a spot where you can pretty much dangle your feet off the edge. That's pretty cool if you have the stomach for it. I kept my feet on the rock. (currently image #71)

Ice axes definitely yes. Ropes were optional. We did not use ropes. Helmets were a must due to the snow/ice/rock fall from people higher up on the route.
