looking back up at the Whitney skyline after the trip, I'm glad to have spent the time to visit this summit. Great views and a little peace and quiet from the Whitney Trail experience, in addition to a little spice.

I enjoyed doing this as a little diversion from the main trail. It didn't take long, and the view from the top is really spectacular.

Nice 8 minute diversion from the trail. Loved looking down the 2000' face. Too bad some clown stole the summit register.

Fun scramble off the Whitney Trail, scary feeling at the tip with near vertical on 3 sides!

Nice little diversion from the Whitney Trail
(with, IMHO, a nicer 360 view than the Whitney summit)

Pics are here.

Michael Graupe2007 Sierra Challenge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2007

Michael Graupe

Last day of the 2007 Sierra Challenge. The main objective of the day was to climb Mt. Newcomb. Starting at Whitney Portal I decided to climb McAdie on the way from Arc Pass. Then descended the class 2 chute to Crabtree Pass, climbed Mt. Newcomb via the class 3 east face. From there I returned to Crabtree Pass and gained the Sierra Crest climbing Discovery Pinnacle from the south. I intercepted the trail and hiked up Mt. Whitney. On the way back I also climbed Keeler Needle, Crooks Peak, Third Needle, Aguille Extra, Aguille du Paquoir and Mt. Muir. A long day in a very beautiful area. 14.5h car to car.

Steve LarsonEast Buttress  Sucess!

Climbed the somewhat long and definitely interesting East Buttress with Brian Decker. After topping out just below the "summit" we traversed over to the main trail, went up Whitney, and then down the Mountaineer's Route. Interesting crowd that you find on Whitney in the summer high season. Some are well-prepared. Others, well, let's just say that they are candidates for a Darwin Award.
