phattyTomorrow is promised to no man  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2010


Despite severe altitude sickness starting at 13K I knew I might never get another shot, or a more perfect day. No wind, no clouds, just a will to overcome and get up top. Beautiful mountain. The glissade down the snowfield saved a lot of time!

tfac2010Toughest Day  Sucess!


Drove up from San Diego after work and slept in the parking lot. Was on the trail by 6:00 a.m. and back to the car in 12 hours. This was my first mountain and I had no idea how difficult it was. Since that time I have ran 5 marathons and climbed other mountains. Yet, I still consider this the most difficult physical feat I have accomplished. Nothing has ever been harder for me.

Before the hordes, permits, and the N. Fork trail was a blaze. Ahh memories. 2nd time on top first was a day hike in 1987.

Great weather, though soft snow was a pain for the descent down the Mountaineers route. The Tower traverse really puts you in your place from the start. Insane exposure for the 1st pitch. Fresh air traverse was super fun, the crux for me was the 5.7 off width/chimney after the traverse. Very difficult with a pack full of ice axes and such.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2010


We did it as a day hike from Whitney Portal. Weather was perfect. Still tons of snow covering the switchbacks so we climbed the snow chute to the right. We glissaded on the way down. Started at 5am. Summit at 2:45pm. Back to the truck at 8pm. Beautiful area! don't know why I haven't come here sooner...

Great trip for us out west.We camped 12,000 ft and summitted early in the morning via mountaineer route.Quite abit of snow in areas.Surprised that no one out west seemed to use snowshoes.Great veiw from the summit.We hiked down a snowy route to the right of the trail which shaved off about a mile or so of descent.We also climbed Mt.Alta and some lesser peaks throughout our week in California.It was all remarkable!!!JimW

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!

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!
