Great hike. Started at 4:45am. On top at 10:40am. Good weather (cloudless, temps in mid-50s, a nippy wind). Summitted with three friends: Aaron, Dan, and Jason. All of us had a great day. Read my trip report entitled, "Whitney Day Hike on June 27, 2004" and see my photo from Trail Crest.

over the west side (crabtree meadow) the late season ice made it easy to point uphill and avoid the switchbacks without impact. Super nice day.

i have trail notes on this site

Nice day hike on a clear summer day. Trail was mostly clear with a few patches of snow here and there. Started at 5:30, reached summit at 11:30.



Took a detour and bagged Mt. Muir as well. 22 miles, 6,500 ft elevation gain, 2 fourteeners, not bad for a day's work. =^)

Perfect day to climb. No wind and the views from the top were incredible.

My wife and I climbed this route over Memorial Day weekend. Initially had bigger plans, but experienced pretty severe altitude effects on day 1 (and day 2 and day 3....) approach to Iceberg Lake (12700') - probably enhanced by the overnight travel (=no sleep). It was a fun route - nice to be climbing in an alpine setting after a winter of cragging. Technically easy climbing (harder variations are possible, we followed the route recommended by supertopo) up to about 5.7 (mostly lower than that). Ran into Guilty (see entry below) on the summit - did not know it at the time however.

MikeB and I hiked in to Iceberg Lake on the first day and spent day 2 acclimatizing. We summited on day 3. The snow on the lower chute was perfect for climbing with crampons/ice ax. Above the notch, we ascended the rocks on the right-hand side of the first chute unroped.

The weather was perfect the day of our climb, but there were very high winds the day before and after. The MR is an incredible route on a spectacular mountain! However, it is not for the faint of heart. Though only a class 3 climb, the exposure may be intimidating for those not used to it. What a great climb!

Here is the full trip report.

Hiked up to basecamp at Upper Boy Scout Lake. Tagged the summit on day 2 with a little variation from the normal mountaineer's route near the top. In the chute above the notch we stuck to the left side because the snow and ice was in good condition and near the top of that there were a couple of class four and short easy class 5 moves that made the bit just before the summit a good deal of fun. Felt very exposed. I started feeling pretty hammered around 14,250 - after every 10 or 20 steps I had to stop and chill for a minute because my head started to get a little woozy. Nothing like a little suffering before reaching the summit - makes it great. All in all the Mountaineers route was a great climb.

Camped just below Iceberg lake and summited the following morning. Strong winds from an approaching storm made packing up camp a little tedious.

Attempted MR route but we got socked in by snow storm. Over the 4/17-18 weekend, the upper portion of the mountain got up to 15"+



One guys we talked to almost got caught in a slab avalanche in the main chute. Proves that mountain weather and conditions can change real quickly!

Got to Trail camp too early so I climbed to Trail Crest and camped there. In the morning I watched the sun come up from the summit.

At this time you can drive almost all the way to whitney portal, in fact a 4wd could probably make it all the way, as it is, we started at about 7700'. Used the E-ledges, stayed on the north side of lone pine creek on the way up, nasty bushes. Camped at UBL, bad winds at night were cold. Next day up and down the MR, good weather, more wind, great snow conditions. Returned to camp to find one less tent, if you find one, my friend might like it back. Great hike, great route. PICS
