asmrzNormal route and E.Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2012


While guiding for Jim Gurnam's Adventure Travel, my wife Penelope hiked up the Whitney Trail with couple of clients and scrambled up the Muir's regular route in 1999.

In summer of 2012, Pen and I climbed the prow of the East Buttress on good and steep rock.

In January of 2013, Pen and I tried to climb the same East Buttress in winter but the snow on the buttress was unconsolidated and deep. We bailed.

woodstriderGetting High on Mount Muir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 1997


This hike was suggested on the day by my climbing partner, who said basically...hey, we're on the way to Mount Whitney so lets do this peak too. The sharp contrast in experience between these two peaks, to this day, remains in my memory.
While Whitney's summit was rather a large, flat, and open summit crowded with hikers (over 90 had already signed the register when we got there), Muir's summit was a small rock outcrop on which we both could barely get on to- the summit register crammed into a crack. It was very windy and the views were wonderful- I have a summit photo of myself, my hat firmly strapped to my head, with the "100 switchbacks" behind me. I was scared and I look it. This was my third 14K. I hope to return.

I climbed Mount Muir on the way to Mount Whitney. Sometime in 2011, if not 2010.

cdogawesome summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2014


neat summit and well worth the jaunt from the main Whitney Trail. We left a little too early and had some extra scrambling to reach the summit blocks. There was a register in place in an ammunition box a few feet short of the top, with plenty of recent entries. We found a ridiculous rappel setup someone had rigged with a solid looking webbing and rap ring anchor supporting some small clothesline-type cheap rope. Did someone actually trust their life to this?? Anyhow, there was certainly some exposure, with the easy hands traverse being the key to the climb. Fun!

psutheFinally  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2014


I have been trying to reach the summit of this one for 5 years, but have been rejected each year for one reason or another. Summiting from the Whitney trail, I wasn't sure if I needed ropes or not based on other posts. With the posted pics and YouTube videos, it was very straight forward - I was totally fine with no protection.

Stephen's final 14er, now he's done all of them in the Lower 48. We did this from Upper Boyscout, and descended via Whitney/Mountaineers' route.

I had to hike two peaks just to find out which was Mt Muir. 3rd class at the top but exposure is limited. Scary suspended rock near the top freaked me out.

Temps near freezing but beautiful skies and a nice little climb after the Whitney summit. Met another couple on the trail looking to climb Muir so we did it together. Fun stuff, the class 3 made it enjoyable- short, but sweet climb. Shout out to Kate and AJ

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2013


I went up the wrong spire first, so had to back track and traverse over to the right one. It was a rushed affair, as my climbing partner (and girl friend) was waiting at Trail Crest for me. The summit was socked in with clouds.

This peak looks really impressive as you climb up the 99 switchbacks on the main Whitney trail, so I had to do it. I would rate the final part of the climb as hard 3rd class or 4th class. The summit is small, and I was nervous because of some strong wind. Beautiful view.
