J Foxlong Day on the East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 26, 2008

J Fox

Our day didn't start too well when we parked about 1.5 miles below the trailhead. To avoid our mistake I'd highly recommend taking Granite View drive to the trailhead rather than the road at the end of Tuttle Creek campground. Once we got to the trailhead we followed the trail to where it crosses a bridge over the creek. From there we turned left and scrambled a thousand vertical feet up some sand, snow and rock to gain the ridge. Once on the ridge we climbed over thousands of feet of really deep sun cups. After about 8 hours of clmbing we topped out to great views of Whitney and Lone Pine Peak. We descended the huge NE Couilor instead of the East Ridge and made it back to the car 12.5 hours after our start.

Had no permit, so we did it as a long day hike. It took 13hrs and almost got struck by lightning on the summit. If you hear a wizzing noise when you hold up your arms, get down quick!!!

96avs01Shred the NE Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 26, 2008


Overnight trip with CMC, good times and great weather. Snow in the couloir was perfect for descent at ~9:45, but I opted to summit and descended at 11 in wet conditions. The turns were still worth it, even in slush.

First time we ran most of this, but had to take my climbing partner to the airport. Second time, found out how far we really were from the summit.

Was going to do Whitney, but a friend said that Langley was more scenic. I agree. We camped at the cottonwood lakes, with Langley's summit right over us. Absolutely beautiful. The photo my son took is on my desktop. Whenever I get stressed I take a minute looking at the photo and it immediately relaxes me.

paisajeroamericanoInteresting Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2005


There was at least one other dog on the summit that day, but I think Cody and I took the most interesting route. Rather than look for the path up to the headwall, I found my own way up. It worked well for me, but I had to lift the dog through some hairy spots. It was quite an adventure. I don't think I could ever find that route again, but somehow it worked. The last 1000'+ after the headwall weren't so bad. We took the trail back down. Great trip. And we got out just before the Labor Day crowds took over.

Went up the Whitney Trail on Friday, camped at crowded Trail camp. The other day got up the switchbacks, made a little side trip to Mt. Muir, short fun climb! Continued following the trail up Whitney summit, spent few hours chatting with people (there were many), than climbed down the Mountaineers Route to Iceberg Lake and spent another windy night there. Didn't get much sleep as the wind blew instantly to my face through my bivy... Another morning I stared late ,9:30, and headed up the Iceberg Col and then traversed to Russel's South Face, which was a long scramble up the face, than a little class 3 up to the ridge. I took the easier Right Side variation. After hanging around summit with 2 guys who climbed Fishhook Arete, climbed down, packed all my stuff and followed the North Folk Creek Trail down to the portal. I must say it is much easier to do so if there is snow... My knees were killing me... That night I drove my car to Cottonwood Lakes trail head, camped there and in the morning started early for the Mt. Langley never ending day hike... Took me 9.5 hours round trip but it was worth it. Beautiful area at Cottonwood Lakes...
Met so many great people on this trip that I have talked to and spent some time with and that was certainly the most rewarding feeling of the whole trip...
