Climbed with Luis, Miguel, and Joan. Two parties. Turned 8 pitches into 7, and soloed the last 3. I led the odd pitches. 5 hours 15 minutes to summit. Such a beautiful climb!

Climbed with Joan, Miguel , and Will . As two parties, Miguel and Joan, and Will and me.
We did it in 7 pitches, soloing the last part (4th class with an easy 5.5 movement).
Good day, sunny in the morning, and light snow storm in the afternoon.

Third time up Whitney, in a pretty mellow day from Upper Boy Scout, sometime in the late 90s. Did the direct start. Good fun.

Awesome climb! My fiance's first long, alpine type climb. She did great! It was also her first 14er. Perfect weather. No issues.

24 hour day. I missed my party, and had to day hike to meet them at iceberg lake. After shivering in the dark for a few hours we hiked up for the route. Three pitches from the top a thunderstorm started. After that we went a lot faster. Great day, long day.

This was my second time of rock climbing on Mt Whitney. On this occasion, my second son Alexander joined me. In comparing this route with my previous experience on the East face (climbed 2 years ago with my older son Christoph), the most notable differences were the somewhat more difficult and sustained quality of technical climbing on solid rock, and the great variety of crux moves on the East Buttress. The airy setting of most pitches on the Buttress was really spectacular although the very dramatic Fresh Air Traverse [on the East face] has no counterpart. Both climbs entail good preparation & endurance (it took us 5.5 hours with a guide to reach the top of Buttress). Highly recommended route for trad climbing!

Bill flew down from Portland to join me for this climb. It was sweet until I felt a little altitude sick on the descent. I ended up puking several times on the hike out.

Last minute invite (thanks, Miguel!). Alt start to avoid the line for the traditional route. Excellent route & perfect weather.
