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.

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.

Super Dave

The east-ridge was awesome! Second summit of a great four-peak traverse with Sawtooth Sean. The crux of the day was finding the spot to exit the ridge and drop into the south face gully. Easy to see from below, but harder to see from above. Continued on to Whitney. Trip Report

Quite a striking route, very memorable experience. Finished despite massive hail storm as we clung to the rock in the middle of the dihedral

Went after the first snow thinking the north side of the east ridge wouldn't be that bad. We were wrong. Made it about half way up the ridge from the saddle before turning back. Lots of snow/ice, had to clear hand and foot holds and we were wearing approach shoes and had cold feet.

Did the Carillon-Russell-Whitney-Muir traverse in a long day with SuperDave. Whitney was great, but Mt. Russell was spectacular. The East Ridge is tons of fun and the down climb the south side provided us with a nice challenge. Watching climbers on the South face routes was fantastic.

Solo from Whitney Portal. Lots of people and bears at the portal, not a single creature on Russell.

Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2010


The crux is a finger crack and slab feet (.10b/c) but the best part is the 200' exposed 5.9 handcrack above. This route also does the crux of Mithril Dihedral at the top. Recommended. Car to car in 17 hours. S Face of Russell is Chilly already mid Sept...

Really a fun climb. Had to cross a short snow field near the top of the east summit. No crampons necessary but used the ice axe just in case.

Fun scramble - took a few variations to avoid snow, and still had to crampon up for one short stretch.
