BlackmouthSpicy Class 3  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2015


Summited via the East Ridge. Having climbed the day after the first snowfall of the season made the Class 3 sections a little spicier than usual. Snow,rime ice and verglas on the ridge made for a much slower than expected trip. Only 2 more 14ers left.

Climbed up South Face, Right side because left side was full of snow and ice. We climbed up the steep and loose rock until the last 300' or so then roped up to climb the last class 4 which was quite exposed and covered in snow but not too difficult. Amazing climb across the top of Russell over to the Summit.

Started off at 5:15 pm from portal up the main trail. Slugged up the Long Pine Creek Mountaineers Trail primarily under headlamp to Lower Boy Scout Lake. Hiked up the scree slope to summit the next day and back to camp. Great view...

East ridge - easiest ascent. Solo hike but I wished I had a partner. Not a soul on the mountain this day. 6 hours from Whitney Portal to summit. Not difficult but scary due to the exposure. Perfect day. I used gaiters when going down the scree hill: much easier and faster descent.

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.
