IgooooorAlpine Style Assent with 40pound pack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010


This was the first time I have been on this beautiful mountain or at this altitude. Was not sure how my body was going to react but thankfully someone recommended easy to digest food which did the trick to stay strong.

Got many comments when people saw my pack and how visibly trying the climb was for me.

Can't wait to return and do this again. Worth all the planning ahead and permitting. Amazing trail maintenance and design!

I am in love!

Day hike from Whitney Portal, started on the trail at 3am. Full moon the entire way, hardly had to use headlamps. Beautiful sunrise. Everyone was healthy for the entire hike, wonderful day!

Awesome day trip from the Portal with John and Steve. Left at 4:15 AM, back by 6 PM...lots of quality time on top. Probably the only time I have been at 14K plus in short sleeves. #19 HP.

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.

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
