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.

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!

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.

Could not have asked for better conditions on the mountain. Cold, perfectly clear skies, all the training paid off and we made it! First time, started at 3:15am, 16 hours. Photos here if interested: Mt Whitney Photos - Wattifoto

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.

Really easy route. Chute up to near the summit is mostly Class 2, but loose. Nice Class 3 above though, not for those that aren't used to that kind of thing. The little snow remaining is easily avoidable.

Climbed from Upper Boyscout Lake. Superb route. Iceberg Lake to summit in 3.5 hrs. Belayed Tower Traverse, up the notch, Fresh Air Traverse, the chimney, the 5.7 corner, and the short 5.5 slab above the corner. Simuled everything else.

Started hiking in Yosemite Valley, followed the John Muir Trail (more or less) to Whitney, descended and hitched a ride to Lone Pine. (Not sure which day in August, but the site demands a guess.)

First time over 12,000 ft and enjoyed every foot of it! Ascended Mountaineer's Route. Good thing I had EricD to help find the disappearing route and a great trail description. Gorgeous weather except for brief moments of smokey skies. Descended in dark via Whitney Trail under very starry skies. Red moon rise around 9:30 pm due to smokey haze.
