LincolnB1985  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 1985


With brother Jon and a friend. Took the long way in, backpacking from Sequoia National Park. Had the trail pretty much to ourselves until the descent down the east side -- which was so crowded I doubt I'll ever do it again.

Whitney was the third summit of a great four-peak traverse with Sawtooth Sean. Climbed the north face after Russell. Last summit group of the day, lucked out and had the highpoint to ourselves. In the end, our day was 15 hours, 17 miles, 8500’ elevation gain. Awesome day. Trip Report

Luke SwansonMountaineer's Route in the Snow  Sucess!

We planned to camp on the way, but we made good time and the snow was good all day. Summited pretty late that day and hiked out in the dark. At the notch, I turned left and took the steep route to the summit, but I took the traverse on the way back to the notch.

MR route with my wife. We only saw some people in the distance, so we practically had the route for ourselves. A very nice mixed climb, with some easy rock and a pretty steep couloir under the summitplateau. The summit is a little bit disappointing, it looks much more spectacular from below, but it was nice and warm and we sunbaked for an hour. The descent was pretty cool. We glisaded down a great part of the normal route.
Pretty long day-hike.

Date Climbed: Apr 17, 2010


Did the mountaineer's route in one day with my buddy Jason. Left at midnight and got to the couloir by sunrise and the top by 9am. We would have gone much faster but once the sun came up the cameras came out and we took tons of shots. This mountain is one of my favorites. Love you Whitney!

Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2007


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.
