jdmorehouseFinally  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2015


Fourth time was the charm. Weathered off the East Ridge twice last year, and some unfortunate snow placement in June. As it was, I only got about ten minutes on the summit, as a storm was coming in (snow and rain began about the time I was back on the Russell/Carillon saddle). Day hike from Whitney Portal.

DieselRussell - the coolest looking mountain I've seen so far  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2014


I was very nervous going up to Russell due to never climbing a class 3 (on the East Ridge)- except for Muir, but that has only a short class 3 section. It turned out it is not as bad. The exposure, indeed great, did not scare me since I'm not afraid of heights. To get to the blade however, it is not for casual hikers.

FairweatherEast Ridge day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2013


2nd time up the East Ridge (this time with Todd). This was a long day, as we were not acclimated. First time was back in the mid 80's with Jim, after a week in Tuolumne Meadows and we blazed it. Also climbed the Fish Hook Arete with Marty in 1996 (one of the best climbing routes I have done in the Sierra - Not difficult, but perfect rock and a great location).

Camped at Upper Boy Scout for East Face on Whitney followed by East Ridge on Russell the following day. Amazing views!!! Loved the small summit to ourselves for admiring Whitney.

Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2011


Day hike of Russell and Whitney together from MR. Tried to add Muir to the list, but scrambled up the wrong peak. There's a phony register on top of one of the unnamed pinnacles near Muir. Someone should remove it.

Josh Lewis

We were very close, but felt like things were getting too dicey with the limited day light. I told myself that day that I did not regret turning around.

gimpilatorWinter Attempt To 13,880
Date Climbed: Dec 9, 2011


Josh Lewis and I made an attempt on the east ridge. According to my GPS we came within 200 vertical feet of the summit. Our decision was based on excessive exposure and 3 hours of daylight remaining. We did Mount Carillon on the way back to camp.
