with Moarkse. First day was a struggle with the wind and routefinding. Second day we made it to about 12,000 to the ridge before Iceberg lake but were too tired to continue. Routefinding was a challenge on the way down, and we wound up using some rappel slings to rappel of the trail where it appeared to have cliffed-out for others as well. Snow condition was very variable, from posthole-soft to icy.

Nice day hike to the summit, had to avoid the switchbacks due to snow and ice and go up the chute which made it a little more interesting, but fun none-the-less.

... and got there. Overnight at Trail Camp is a great experience, dawn breaking as you're heading up the 99 switchbacks is stunning.

One of the best days of my life... and my feet had never hurt so much! We started at around 6 am and reached the summit around noon. Stayed at the hostel in Lone Pine and got pizza across the street... perfect set up.

Successful 6-day backpacking trip, entering the High Sierra over Shepherd Pass and pushing to the top from the west on JMT, then descending to Whitney Portal.

Took the main trail up and down in one day. Enjoyed the company of old friends, fabulous weather, gorgeous views and no bear encounters. Anyone who prepares and is in good condition can do this hike in the summer.

Made it to High Camp and spent the night, followed by going to the summit early the next morning and collecting our tent on the way back down. Awesome experience, and I can't wait to do it again someday.

Gimpilator, Michael and I climbed this as a 4 day trip, but climbed Carillion and attempted Russel along the way. At first we were on the mountaineers route, but ended up on the North Face due to some icy slope.

We spent 3 nights above 11,000 feet. We did Carillon, attempted the east ridge of Russell and finished with the Mountaineers Route. Significant ice flows forced us to make large detours in three places on the route.

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
