Iron HikerImportant milestone!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2010

Iron Hiker

Summited Whitney at the end of a great week in the Sierra. Set a new altitude record and went over 14,000' for the first time. Not that bad of a hike, began on the Whitney trail at 4:30am, summited at 11:30am and returned to the Portal at 5pm. My knee was bothering me some since I had banged it up earlier in the week but the hike went smoothly. It'll be a long time before I climb something higher!

runbyu18 Day Finish of the John Muir Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


Fastpacked the John Muir Trail in 8 days with a good deal of running but no hiking in dark and naps every day. Came up from guitar lake area, dropped our packs just below the saddle and ran all the way up to the summit. Lots of people on top including a marriage---crazy! We ran all the way down the other side to the ranger station---an incredible finish to an unbelievable trip.

AllorNothing426Re: 8 Day Finish of the John Muir Trail
Looking to do JMT - this summer - debating on August or End of June - How was the weather in Aug? Also - Do you have your daily log of miles?? We're looking to do it in under 14 days - Any good camp sites you'd recommend? Thanks!

Very difficult day hike. The switchbacks were icy and I did not have crampons. Departed portal at 3am did not return until 7pm, conditions made for a long day, but the summit always feels good.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2002


Second highest state highpoint and our 10th. We climbed it via the Mountaineer's Route with guide Howie and co-guest Kevin from LA. A nice summit day after a night at the Upper Boy Scout Lake with a few hours of sleep.

Left Outpost Camp @ 2am, made the summit @ 8am. Colder than I expected after Trail Crest, but a good morning.

DrewidTrail Hike   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2010


Though not my preferred style for my first time up Whitney, I have to admit that this trail is spectacular. You transition from the sanctuary of the Portal up through splendid meadows and finally up into the high granite ramparts of the Whitney Crest. The catwalk section of trail past Trail Crest is pretty cool. Not a dramatic summit but certainly a dramatic view.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2010


After failing 3 times on winter attempts of the mountaineer's route, this one was egging at me. I decided to hike it at the last minute, so to avoid the lottery issue, I backpacked from Cottonwood Lakes (tagging Langley along the way) to the JMT, summitted from the West side, and descended the regular hiking trail on the East side. 4 days, 47 miles, and solo. Very happy!

Mt. Whitney Trail, 2 days with a camp at Trail Camp, 14.5h overall. Beautiful hike, Alp-like views, easier than expected if well acclimatized.

8:05 AM ascent from Guitar Lake to Muir Peak then Whitney summit by 10:15 with my 35 pound pack. Descend the Mountaineers route, seeing one other hiker. Finishing a successful two week completion of the John Muir Trail with a great but short day.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2008


Hiked the Whitney Trail with my 17yr old son. Beautiful day to hike. My son who usually is a strong hiker struggled to the summit, but finished strong. I felt great all day and thought the trail was easier than what I had read.

Used the Cottonwood Lakes and Whitney/Portal loop to acclimatize. An alpine start ensured my success. I would love to revisit the region when I have gained some scrambling skills (and partners with equal ability).
