weeds19A long day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2002


I took the last flight of the day from ABQ to LAX. I rented a car at the airport and drove to Whitney Portal just in time to start the hike. After using the facility on top I headed down and took a short nap at trail camp before returning to my rental car and driving back to LAX for the flight home.

Date Climbed: Oct 17, 1999


Climbing partner took on a case of AMS just below Muir. He turned back to the window. I summited. Don't know why, but as soon as I hit the top, the tears just came. Signed the logbook and put comment "Nothing but tears". Beautiful fall day. Clear, sunny, cool, and a slight breeze.

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2001


im unsure about the dates its been a while. I went with some old drunk guy and his flat-lander friend. Much better than slogging the trail during the summer, ebersbacher ledges were not as hairball as advertised.
I got Warren Harding to sign my route book next to the description of the his route.

Excellent weather. It took 12 hrs and 59 minutes. I had the worst headache starting from swtichbacks to the summit. Took me 5 hr to reach the summit (from the 97 switchbacks). I was crawling. But it was worthwile. It taught me respect for nature.

Date Climbed: Dec 27, 2005
I didn't get too high on this one. The weather was poor, and I wasn't feeling too fit. I didn't need snowshoes, crampons worked perfectly at that time. If you know what you're doing, Winter is definitely a good time to climb Whitney. I really enjoyed a wilderness experience on the mountain that not everyone gets. I'll definitely be back!

Mt Whitney winter summit
Trail conditions on the main route are excellent. No snowshoes required. Summitted without strapping on crampons, but probably should have! Crampons (and axe, of course) required from trailcrest to middle of the switchbacks on the way down. Photoson the Mt Whitney main page show the trail starting to fill in with packed snow which freezes. Above trailcrest the trail is 25% covered and half of that is solid ice. See photos of trail conditions on Mt Whitney main page dated Dec 6th. Camped at Trail Side camp @12,000', 15 degrees overnight. 15.5 hrs total hiking.

What an awesome climb! It was very hot the day that we chose to climb and we apparently did not bring enough water as we were very dehydrated by the time we reached the summit. Splitting headaches.
