thetennisguyMR 1st 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 24, 2010


This was my first 14er and first time south of Bridgeport on the East Side. Sierra Mountaineering Group Meetup. We did the willows on the approach and descent (not the ledges). Camped just above UBSL, then climbed via MR and descended on the 24th. That was a long day. It was worth it. Love the East Side!

First time over 14,000 feet. Went up the main trail, and up through the snow covered chute to trail crest, then onto the summit. Up and down in one day.

Made the climb with my son, up and back in one day! Switchbacks still covered in snow and ice so we climbed via the snowfield and up the main chute. We had the summit to ourselves!!!

NJTripperSuccess on 2nd attempt - Mountaineers Route!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2009


Was snowed off summit during visit last year. This time - weather was perfect! Clear skies and not too cold entire trip.
Nearly talked myself into bailing just below the notch (legs were done..) but after taking a lunch-break - decided to push on to the summit... Soooooo glad I did!

catalyst81HSM trail attempt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2009


Completed a 5 day backpacking trip. Started at Horseshoe Meadows and went to Soldier Lake, Crabtree Meadows, above Guitar Lake, and then up Whitney and down after spending the night at Trail Camp. Soldier Lake was gorgeous. Trip of a lifetime!

catalyst81Day Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2009


First time hiking Whitney was a day hike. Acclimated at the portal for a day with a light hike up to Lone Pine Lake. Visit the lake on your way up - absolutely beautiful! Six in our group and we all made it! Beat the thunderstorms to the summit. A great experience, but 22 miles feels really long for a day hike on the way back.

Climbed late summer of 1998. Could only get a one day permit, so hiked for about 18 hours straight.

gregorpatsch2 failed attempts on Mountaineers Route


Late Spring 2002 - Didn't take any time to acclimate and my brother got real sick at Upper Boyscout. Dayhiked to Iceberg to scout out route for a later attempt.

Late Spring 2003 - Poor snow conditions. Postholing to our waists between Lower and Upper Boyscout.

What an epic mountain in the Eastern Sierra, A must do for all. Take the MR route, worth every bit of extra effort.

Snowsloggertrail hike with bivy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 1985


Started up at night, did a brief cold bivy in my jacket (older and smarter now), then continued up trail to summit. Jet flyover was unnerving.

Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2009


It was extremely windy morning. Some groups have returned at 10am without reaching the summit. We took a late start which unexpectedly was the right thing to do. Got to the summit by 2pm and return to base camp around 4pm

First 14'er. Big snow year as the switchbacks were still covered in snow on Father's Day. Went up snow chute and it was crystal clear day with almost no wind and no clouds. Had summit by ourselves for about 30 minutes. Couldn't have been better! 14 hours RT.
