Climbed the standard route with Matt Thielman, Ezra Danciu, and Hugo Pimentel. Long 22 mile trek. Took us 14 hours.

North fork trail on a very dry, snow-less day. Climbed it again the next year in early March. Tons of snow and had to hike 4 miles up the portal road just to get to the trail head...there was a rockslide covering the road. On the way down from the summit we came found a woman at the top of the notch who had passed out from apparent dehydration and/or altitude sickness. With the help of 4 other climbers we were able to lower her by rope then carry her to iceberg lake where we left her with a rescue team. This was supposed to be a quick day trip...we ended up hiking/climbing for 23 hours straight and with the rock slide it was about 20 miles roundtrip.

I was in high school. My dad and I could not get an overnight permit. So we did the day hike. It was beautiful. I really wanted to do it from the West as a backpack trip after looking off the summit.

vanman798East Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2011


The views are amazing, and what a classic trad climb via the East Buttress, you "gots" to love it. It was a little chilly but I really enjoyed it nevertheless. There were a couple other parties climbing the same time as our group, but we had the peak to ourselves. We desended via the Moutaineers route and that was dusted in snow with icy patches, pretty dangerous.

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2011


Went up the Mountaineer's route, on what was an astoundingly beautiful day! Went down the trail to get Mt. Muir on the way down, and boy those switchbacks suck!

twigasaurusEarly Start on Main Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2011


With a forecast for snow storms late in the morning, we decided to start our hike at 12:30am. Most of the hike up was in the dark under the stars. We reached the top just after sunrise. The whole trip down was new to us since we hadn't seen it in the light. Much more beautiful than I was expecting.

MtnDoser1st time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2011


Mt Whitney trail dayhike. Started at 5am (a lil late), summited about 3pm, and finished at 1am... basically a 20hr hike. We had a couple of people in the group struggling with the altitude and length of the trip, so it took longer than expected. All 6 of us made it to the top and back in our 1st attempt, beating the odds of 1 in 3. So I'm happy, and I wanna go back and shatter that time by multiple hours!

Peter50Mt Whtney Hike,
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011
Hiked Mt. Whitney on August 27, 2011. It was 110 degrees in Lone Pine and 40 degrees on top of the mountain. It hailed up there the day before. Bring long pants and a warm jacket and gloves and you should be comfortable. We started at 3:30 am and returned by 6PM. Kept moving the whole time, the switchbacks are the longest and steepest I'ver ever hiked. The trailcrest at the top of the switchbacks is really something. This is a very difficult hike, definitely not for kids. On the way down I started to wonder why I do this, but once you are down you remember the reason for such grueling hikes and I can't wait to do this all over again. I love hiking, I will do it until the day I die!

Did the Carillon-Russell-Whitney-Muir traverse in a long day with SuperDave. Whitney was great, but Mt. Russell was spectacular. We had the summit to ourselves on Whitney about 3pm.
