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!

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.
