jpsmythMultiple climbs


First time was in grade school up the trail. Followed by an ill-fated attempt on east face. Last two attempts were successful via the Mountaineers Route.

Via Mountaineer's Route. Clear conditions after a brief storm on Saturday, but very windy. The first pitch of the final 400ft is rock/mixed right now, while the rest is fairly deep snow under a crust.

Most Technical summit to date via Mountaineer's Route! Felt like summer in the afternoons and the dead of winter in the mornings. A 1 night trip, camping at the very frozen over Iceberg lake.

After only 3 hrs sleep, I started my solo day hike at 8:30am (late) Had to turn back at trail crest due to incoming thunderstorms and also the altitude was getting to me. Plan on going back this summer. AWESOME TIME!!

Climbed from the backside (started from horseshoe meadows). Summited. Then descended the Mountaineer's Route, on snow all the way down to Iceberg Lake. Did not disappoint!

I did Whitney as an end to my traverse of the JMT in fall. I slogged through a blizzard up Forester Pass the previous day and it was pretty much all melted by the time I summitted Whitney the following evening. I slept in the hut atop, but before you call me stupid, there was zero lightning danger. I spent the whole next day walking down with my through-hiker's pack -ouch.

Kind of a slog. The last 400 feet was quite steep for Class 3. Nobody on the summit but me. Quite a view.

East Face, East Buttress, Moutaineers route are perfect and classic. Would repeat Whitney any time. Winter ascent?

Great hike in great weather. Camped at Consultation Lake to avoid the crowds. Nice to be able to make the top after snow turned us around at Trail Camp last year.

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!
