Exhausting! Coming down that trail has to be the worst thing I've ever done, not because of the physical effort, but the amount of painful talus and switchbacks.

This was our first venture to high(ish) elevation, and it did kick our butt quite a bit. We did this as an overnighter. Couldn't sleep on summit plateau, that made the summit quite a bit more strenuous. 99 switchbacks had a good deal of show but no ice.

Beautiful! Surreal sunrise through the cracks in the ridge after trail crest. Otherworldly look to all of the fractured rock. Perfect amount of wind, swirling mist, clear air and warm sun to finish off an amazing John Muir Trail trip.

Great hike with beautiful views. The hike is easy but very long (which you usually first notice during the descent). We started around 4pm and summited 7 hours later. During the descent we slided down the chute, which was fun and fast.

DarrenKnezekFantastic Climb via the Mountaineer's Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2014


The road was closed by the locked gate just after Lone Pine Campground. It added an extra 2,000 feet of elevation gain as well as 3 more miles. We didn't encounter any snow until around 9,000 feet. We needed snowshoes around Lower Boy Scout Lake. Continued to Upper Boy Scout Lake to camp. Left at 6 am and summites around noon .
A rope and anchor material was nice for the newer members of our group.

Pulled the day permit. 22 grueling round trip miles but totally worth it. Sunrise on the eastern face is nothing short of religious.

The hike, alpenglow,moon over Mt Muir, summiting Whitney and Muir were great, but were spectacular because I was accompanied by my son, daughter and son-in-law who all sailed up and helped create an embedded memory for us!

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2013


Third time's the charm....snowed out on 2 prior attempts, I went with the East Face in the summer heat this year to knock Whitney off my list. Great climb, Mountaineer's Route down. Camped at Upper Boy Scout Lake for 2 nights to summit Russell as well the following day.

3rd time up. As I am sitting here typing I am disappointed we did not take the Mountaineers route. However, we had a couple of people who had never been at any altitude and I felt caution was the best plan of attack
