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!

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!

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.
