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...

bagged it from the WT on the way down. Great view of the dreaded switchbacks. I agree not quite the necessary 300', but worth the excursion.

Almost feels like cheating doing it from the main trail, but the good class 3 (3+?) scramble takes away the guilt. Second 14-er of the day (3rd if you count Keeler Needle). Dimitri and I skipped Crooks because its too much like Keeler and I needed something else to look forward to on my next trip. Awesome views of "The 99" and Trail Camp.

Day hiked the MR with 2 friends. Their first time up Whitney. My 4x made all the better with friends. Very busy in the chute lots of people knocking rocks loose. Took the main trail back and tagged Mt Muir on the way.

At the end of a long Carillon-Russel-Whitney dayhike, I decided to head up the short use trail north of the Whitney Trail to the fun class 3 scrambling of Mt Muir. It was very worth it.

Very short diversion. I see a maximum prominence of about 280' above ridgeline. I take it that there isn't a 300' prominence rule for CA 14er's, or perhaps this was a just exception to the rule for a good cause?

Climbed from the main trail after climbing the MR up Whitney. Almost made the long hike out the main trail worth it. Almost. Some fun scrambling up to the top.

This is an aweful route. Secor describes it as "a splendid climb." He probably never climbed it. All that we found was choss, loose rock, plants growing in climbing cracks, and talus sliding on top of sand for the class 3 sections. Tried to climb the Misha variation but ended up climbing a differnt hand crack (5.7) to the left. I would not recommend this route to anyone. Climbed with emppeng27 (cool kid)

Day tripped this along with Whitney in a little under 12hrs car to car. The summit block seemed more challenging than the class 3 I expected After a few tries found a workable line to the top.

It's a fun side trip with a little pucker power. If you've got a extra hour on your Whitney assent you should do it. 2005 was a great snow year.

Scrambled up and down on my way to the summit of Whitney. My climbing partner turned around at this point.
