IcemansurfLong day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2010


Last year, lots of snow still, did the day hike from Whitney Portal. Left at 2AM, made it up the snow chute before it was post-hole city, and made the summit at 1130am. Didn't drink enough water, dehydration and altitude made me puke twice after glisading down to Trail camp. Back to the car by 6pm. Long day but glad to have made it. Weather was great and the views were awesome. Would love do to the Mountaineers route sometime.

Date Climbed: May 26, 2011


Went from trailhead to Iceberg Lake. The mountain seemed still firmly set in winter. High winds, low temps, insufficient tent, stove that decided not to work and a partner with possible AMS made us decide to turn around. However, it is a beautiful route. I can't wait to get back and give it another go.

Late post here. Myself and two others attempted the Mountaineer's Route, only to be punted off due to a storm. Winds were raging at Iceberg lake. Probably in the 60+ range with higher gusts at times. While we were making our go/no go decision, some others who just turned around advised we should turn around as another guided rope team had a fall and winds were getting worse. I try to summit each winter, but not this year I guess. Oh well. Next year I may solo.

Did a 2 day trip up the Whitney trail, stayed at Trail Camp. Alot of snow this year, switchbacks were closed so had to go up the chute. Was a good time, after 10 minutes on the summit thunder boomed, it started to snow and we all fled! My first 14er!

Received walk-in permit Friday morning and departed the Portal for Upper Boy Scout Lake. Summited Saturday and returned to Upper Boy Scout. Hiked out Sunday morning. Snow conditions were quite soft. Almost easier to use the rock/scree to move up to the Notch unless you leave EARLY for the summit.

Our original plan was to climb the Mountaineers Route, but Lone Pine Creek was raging, so we backtracked and settled for the standard route.

Date Climbed: May 28, 2011


Started out at 3:30 a.m. Main Whitney Trailhead. GPS read 15.8 miles round trip gaining over 6100 vertical to the top. I was thankful for the mileage I could cut off with the snow level starting at 9500. Whitney is one of my favorites. The snow chute from 12,000 to 13,500 definately made it feel like mountaineering to me. Loved every minute of the 14.5 hours it took. Next time I hope to find partners that won't bail on me.

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.
