Portal....began the 97 switchbacks under alpen-glow on Whitney....blood red sunrise. Gorgeous. Met a climber going up the switchbacks who was on his way to Mt. Muir so joined him and we examined the summit block and ascended as per Secor's route. Thrilling! Whitney was a slog from this point-on. Glad it's off my list.

This was a challenge for me but it was a glorious day and I made the summit in just under 11 hours on the Whitney Portal trail. No speed record for sure but I got there!

Via standard route under threatening skies in a touch under 11 hours. Maybe better on the Mountaineers Route?

Second attempt on Whitney Summit. Last year tried the Mountaineers route, but it was too snowy and sunny at the same time, and got sun poisoning on the way up. This time went for the main trail and summited no problem!

Climbed with a couple of guys from SMG (Dakin and Leath). Stuck to the left side of the main chute then climbed the second chute on the north side. Lots of loose rock in the gullies but manageable.

The class 3 scramble of the Mountaineers Route (and parts of the North Fork Lone Pine Creek Trail) is a definite superior choice over the 22 miles and endless switchbacks of the Mt. Whitney Trail. I enjoyed the challenge, scenery and good time with my son as we bagged our first CA 14er and Lower-48 HP. That and a couple days in Yosemite to get acclimated were a great culmination to a month of "getting as high as we can" (Elbert, Massive, then Whitney)! If we can get Rainier next summer we will have the top five highest peaks in the Lower-48.

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2012
Had a lot of fun with this one after wanting to do it for a long time. Left Portal at 4:30, summit at 11:15 - went to do Keeler Needle afterword but the last couple of steps were a little more exposure than I wanted so I backed off 7 feet from that summit. Enjoyable day, back to the car just after 5:00 PM, and back home in Tracy before midnight.

jswitzkyBachelor "Party" hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2007
Made the trip with 2 buddies in lieu of a "bachelor party" before my wedding. Came via Cottonwood Lakes and New Army Pass, 4-day total. We didn't see another soul between crossing New Army Pass and hitting Trail Crest on summit day. First night was frigid (10 degrees), but summer-like weather after that. Some snow on the switchbacks heading down from the summit to the Portal.

Better views (if that's possible) second time and five years after my previous climb. Adding Crooks Peak and Discovery Pinnacle this time were fun diversions. Had great compadres to hike with too!

Did a quick run up to Muir after hauling pack to trail camp. Got back to camp for a bit of sleep then did a leisurely ascent to Whitney with the rest of the group. Also bagged Langley earlier in the week. Fun week in the Eastern Sierra.

Left @ 4:30am. Summit at 10:30am. Perfect weather. Hey, don't worry about getting a day-use permit. There are plenty available the day before you need it. There are about 30-50% cancellations, and that puts 30-50 permits back into the pool by 3pm the day before. The ranger told me that there are several unused permits every day. I drove down from Bend, OR and did not have a concern getting a permit. Also, there is not fee for a permit obtained the day before it is needed.

Did this with my brother (his first time peakbagging). I was actually expecting the whole thing to be a lot harder, but my feet/legs didn't even hurt. My brother thought it was a lot harder though. Went up to the top in a day and then camped at trail camp. Finished off with pancakes at the trailhead.
