Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2013
After a week of monsoon the weather finally cleared. Started out at 7:00 a.m. and the trailhead was like a ghost town. I recommend using poles for this trail, I didn't bring mine but wish I had.

Did Mt Whitney trail in a day, pretty lengthy day but the views were worth it.

State HP #27. This was my favorite summit by far! The views were spectacular, and i had some emotion as i stood on the lower 48's tallest peak. The trail wasn't too difficult, though very long and my body was exhausted beyond belief upon finishing. Camping at trail camp at 12k feet in the boulder field was neat. I am so happy with my experience there, and will remember it for a long time. Mt Whitney, wohoooo!!

jrnewmannMountaineers Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2013


Climbed this bad boy via the mountaineers route and descended the main trail. This was my first time up the mountain on any route and my Dad's third (he climbed via the main trail his other two times) and we thouroughly enjoyed our climb. It was a perfect day on the mountain in the morning, sunny and warm until above iceberg lake. The consensus between us was that the mountaineers route kicks the crap out of the main trail and is a ton more fun to climb, however we can't comment on descending it although the trail is long and boring. The views of the peak are far superior to that of the main trail and we only saw like 7 people all day, none of them dayhiking like we were. It snowed on us a little bit up at the top. It was a long ass day but absolutely fantastic.

Best day ever...
Climb the mountaineers route.

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2007


It rained in the night ... it snowed in the early morning. Snow in August! I was wearing shorts. I did not have the sense to turn back as others did on the way up the snow-lined 99 switchbacks -- and I'm glad of that. Alone I was with God on the summit that morning. The combination of spectacular views and peace and serenity cannot be described. This trek was an experience like no other.

Completely socked in and zero view so I felt kind of cheated. Then it started sleeting... Overall an awesome experience though. I didn't feel like the 99 switchbacks were as bad as I thought. Hiking back uphill to Trail Crest on the way down was awful though. It's not a long stretch but your body's had enough up at that point.

Camped at trail camp. 99 switchbacks went on forever, but making it to the highest point in the lower 48 was well worth the time it took to get there.

Started at Lone Pine Campground for fear of it being too snowy at Whitney Portal. Stayed at outpost camp. Summitted next day. Very little snow for January. Very windy storm hit on way down, but there was little snow falling.

I missed this hike last year (Mountaineer's Route) because I got hit by a car riding my bike two weeks before my trip. But I made it this year (standard route) with a lot of advil ...

Semi-cloudy day. Only one or two patches of snow remained. Easy route.

A very very very long walk. An extremely long day gave me a good chance to delve deep into the very soul of my GF, haha.

Mountaineers route. Started at 530am, summit at 130. Took a nice little break at iceberg lake. Was a great experience and challenge. Took Whitney trail down, 5 hours nonstop, beating. Overall though a great day with great weather! Shout out to Matt for climbing with me from UBS lake on up.
