The Mountaineers Route

In December of 2011 I had the pleasure of joining Josh Lewis and Michael Blake on an ambitious road trip. We climbed Mount Hood, Mount Whitney, Manly Beacon in Death Valley, and Wheeler Peak (NV). This album contains images and video from the second climb of that trip.

For the rest of the trip, check out the Hood album which contains a video. There are also short videos for Manly Beacon and Wheeler Peak.

Ideally the Mountaineers route but I'm thinking it will be the winter variation of the Whitney Trail route.

Matt, if conditions are looking good, definitely do the mountaineers route! As long as you stay on route, it feels like class 2 at "the worst of it". But we got off route due to an ice patch we did not want to cross.

Do you know the current condition of the Whitney Trail? I am looking to do this next week and want to know what to prepare for.

Sorry Nic, I have no idea how the conditions have changed since we were there.

Great vid, nicely done. Headed up for a late march attempt. Did you rap down the top section on the way down, saw you setting some screws.

In the video Josh and I are actually rappelling down from our approach route to Russell and Carillon. But the ice screws were used to belay me across some water ice on the north face of Whitney a few hundred feet below the summit.
