Was not going to miss this side trip while slogging up the Whitney trail. As most have said it makes your Whitney day way more satisfying (that is if you're slogging). The summit block was a blast, it was nice to actually pull some granite in order to nab the peak. The summit is an enjoyable one that probably could accomodate 5 to 7 people max.

8:05 AM ascent from Guitar Lake to Muir Peak then Whitney summit by 10:15 with my 35 pound pack. Descend the Mountaineers route, seeing one other hiker. Finishing a successful two week completion of the John Muir Trail with a great but short day. This was my fifth time up it.

Highly recommended side-scramble from the Whitney trail. I took a lot of time making sure to keep it class 3, as I was by myself, but there are a bunch of different ways to tackle the summit block.

Still some snow. I didn't quite know what to look for from the trail...all of those spires look the same. I guessed right and found a box. Fun climb and cool view.

I had been on top of Whitney several times and never knew I walked right by it. Ben and I killed it!

Did Whitney the same day but this peak was a MUCH more satisfying summit. A bit of class 4/ 5.1 with some HUGE exposure on top made the day.

Except for that stinkin' step-around, I didn't whimper once. Didn't even notice the exposure on the tippy top. Good times.

Spur of the moment trip from LA. Went to do McAdie, decided to do Whitney then decided instead to do Muir, which I hadn't climbed yet.

I missed the rocks designating the route but fortunately my partner found it. It was exactly one hour detour and well worth it. Class 3 climb wi no serious exposure if your paying attention. Muir was the highlight of the "Whitney" day hike.

cabFirst 3rd Class Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2008


Up main trail on Mt. Whitney then climbed Muir for my first Class 3 route. Great introduction to Class 3 since exposure is pretty limited even though it may look worse from the bottom. All the route info on SummitPost really helped.

farrisglExhilarating small summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2003


I carry a 30m x 8mm rope which weighs about 3 pounds , 1”webbing for a swamibelt, few chocks, and a couple of slings for just such peaks. The whole set weighs about 6 pounds. I figure on being a bit tired at elevation and I might get off route. A slip could result in broken ankle, or worse. These little added gear sure make summiting a more enjoyable experience for us.

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2008


First attempted Muir in 2003. Got nervous. Attempted it again in 2004 and got halfway up the summit block but got nervous and turned around. This time, before making the trip, I researched the best way up and got it.

Climbed Muir while on the way down the Whitney Trail. Might have been 3rd class, but the exposure made it a bit sketchy without a rope on the west side.
