bennovakRoute Climbed: Via the Whitney Trail Date Climbed: July 31 2005  Sucess!


A real nice distraction on a day on the Whitney trail. Greg P. and I broke from our group to check it out. The last 80 feet are a little bit exposed and interesting, but it is not difficult and the rock is good. A pleasant break from the mundane swtichbacks.

My second 14'er (Shasta was first) and first class 3 climb. Almost gave up 50 feet from the top, but my friend Dave discovered the move needed to continue up the route. Exhilarating summit.

Came up via Whitney MR, wasn't too hard locating the start of the route off the main trail. But we did get a little confused about which was the actual summit. Finally made it. Was quite an interesting summit block.

Fun and straightforward from the trail. It’s gotta be the easiest California 14er.

Muir was the third summit for today's day hike. Russell-Whitney-Muir. Burtal hike on a great day. Nice little class 3-4 scramble at the top.

Great weather and good side trip from the main whitney trail. Like others commented, there were loads of people going past who didn't seem to notice the peak at all.

I took a short diversion on the way back from summitting Whitney. Muir is a bit of a scramble and some exposure. The summit is very small and takes some courage to stand up rather than just sit there.

Third peak in a row where I got too anxious and left the trail too early. As a result, had to traverse over from the horn to the south - still a fun summit block.

Enjoyable but short climb. Made the summit in 2:20 from bivy spot at U. Crabtree lake. Decided the best way up that sand hill is to climb the cliffs (cl.3). Must have watched 30 hikers pass on the trail below that didn't even look up, no wonder this peak is rarely climbed.

This was a fun summit block. We took a route that was more or less left of center. There is a decent use trail leading up to it that is marked with a duck on the Whitney Trail.

Nice scramble to the top in a light snowfall. Great views. Dayhike of Whitney and Muir (came up the MR and went down the trail).

MishaRoute Climbed: East Buttress (new 5.7 variation) Date Climbed: July 24, 2004  Sucess!


Etsuko and I climbed a new variation on the East Buttress route. Instead of climbing on the right side of the crest (classic route) or via a squeeze chimney (documented variation), we climbed a vertical crack/chimney system to the top of the "1st tower". It provided a new aesthetic line on the route that is better protected and more enjoyable than the original chimney. The weather in the area was incredible. We solo'd most of the route with the exception of two new pitches. Whoever thinks that this route (any variation) is Class 4, think again. We encountered mid 5th class moves and lots of exposure from the very base of the buttress. As we topped out, we reunited with our friends who just completed the 5.10a route on Aiguille Extra. Fun!

Bag it, tag it, sell it to the butcher in the store.

Fun short class 3 section. Small summit block. Nice views. Took my eleven year old. His first climb and first summit ever.

Fun but scary scramble up the rock face on return from a day hike to Whitney. The top is so small, it was hard to turn around. If you get vertigo, this is NOT the place for you.

22 miles, 6,500 ft elevation gain, 2 fourteeners, not bad for a day's work. =^)

This wasn't plan, we just did this as we went along the day.
