HeyItsBenWhitney Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2008


After getting shafted on Polemonium the day before, we scored Whitney permits just as someone else forfeited them. Got 1 hour of sleep, left the car at 12:40am, summit at 7am, car at 11:20am. Been up Whitney a few times already so didn't bother. Fun and too short 3rd class.

Rewarding views with a quiet summit experience away from the busy trail. Would have stayed a while longer, but with Whitney calling and the clouds building, we were off the peak and on to greater heights. Completed the journey with a quick departure from Consultation Lake camp in a lovely afternoon hail storm. The trail was draining a couple inches of icy water for many miles. Left camp at 5PM to reach car at full darkness. Side note: Love those trail runner shoes and smart socks. Miles packing out with feet in water and no discomfort.

Had tried several times before alone. But running into some experienced climbers taught me the value of experience. Turned out to be a pretty easy scramble.

Last day of the 2007 Sierra Challenge. The main objective of the day was to climb Mt. Newcomb. Starting at Whitney Portal I decided to climb McAdie on the way from Arc Pass. Then descended the class 2 chute to Crabtree Pass, climbed Mt. Newcomb via the class 3 east face. From there I returned to Crabtree Pass and gained the Sierra Crest climbing Discovery Pinnacle from the south. I intercepted the trail and hiked up Mt. Whitney. On the way back I also climbed Keeler Needle, Crooks Peak, Third Needle, Aguille Extra, Aguille du Paquoir and Mt. Muir. A long day in a very beautiful area. 14.5h car to car.

Solo Russell / Whitney / Muir in a day hike for the second time. Once on the trail, it's only a short scramble, definitely worth the extra 1/2 hr.
Towards the bottom of the switchbacks I tripped and cracked a rib, which didn't feel that great. My total time was still better than before - 14 hrs or so.

Used a rando rope for a little protection but it was not really needed.

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.
