Perfect day, in the perfect place. We took a missed turn on the descent and ended up cliffing out. A few thrown skies, and packs later with a little front pointing in ski boots and we were back at the bottom. Good day.

Perfect day for a climb up Russell. Miguel Forjan and I did this as a long day hike. Did the Rockwell Variation on the approach, climbed the East Ridge and descended the South Slope and main chute from the Russell-Carillon Saddle back to Clyde Meadow. The views and the East Ridge are stellar. All in all an awesome day!

Striking line and fun scrambling with exposure! My first solo trip...and with the remnants of snow from earlier in the week, and the fact that no one else was on the mountain made for a real epic adventure.

2007 Sierra Challenge alternate peak. Beautiful line up a stately mountain on perfect rock.

Used the East Ridge as our descent route. First climbed Whitney via Mountaineers route, then over to Muir, down North slope of Whitney, up the South slope of Russell, and finally back to Upper Boyscout Lake via East Ridge. With Lori Curry.

My second time up this ridge, this time in the summer. It sure is mellow when not covered in snow. Great day hike from the portal. I took my friend and coworker up this peak; it was his very first back country experience and climb. He did phenomenally well considering the commitment and the exposure. Before we returned to the portal, he was already talking about doing it again. Another one hooked, eh :)

A great third class experience.. but I'd pass if you don't have some technical climbing background.

Hiked with my brother. Traversed over from Carrillon. Not as terrifying as I was expecting. Lost lots of time trying to avoid going back over the East Ridge, lookin' for the S chute. Lost lots of time crossing the willows of LP Creek. Took 20hrs to get back to the TH.

Got a late start out of Whitney Portal with my brother Mark. We ran into some ice high up and ended up getting benighted above 13000 feet without bivy gear. One of the longest nights in recent memory.
