Sometmes we go to the mountains to heal, to discover something missing in our lives. This was one of those trips. (I'll mention this column writing is a labor of love. No money for hits. Day job is news director. Anyway here is the story.

BombchaserSolo on Mount Whitney Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2006

Bombchaser

Summited via the Whitney trail. I spent four days on the mountian. Recieved two blizzards with 70-80 mph winds, and weather had called for mild and sunny. Had a base camp at Trail Camp. Route up through switchbacks to summit was covered in ice and snow, forming a slope, not a trail.

Had hoped to do Whitney as an overnight hike, but no luck in the lottery. So opted for a day hike ... one very long day, going up against a harsh headwind. Fantastic views in all directions!

We did the relatively easiER trail instead of a climb since we had only one day and I had my wife in tow. She actually towed me up the mountain and then I had to tow her the last few miles out to the car.

I climbed Whitney in August 1998. Mt. Muir makes a good side outing on the return trip.

The Notch was the best part. Snow down the middle but nice 3rd class on the left (east) side. Desended the main trail.

Summited in superb conditions. Got to Iceberg lake early in the day and spent most of the afternoon hiding from the sun. Didn't even need to don the crampons with the dry conditions the next day.

We got to just below Iceberg Lake, then "slept" in a roller coaster of a tent, then bailed when we woke to blowing snow and gusty winds. We didn't have goggles and the guided group we were camped 100ft above was bailing too, so we though it would be a good idea too.

Almost two years ago, but better late than never. Went up the MR with 4 others. Went up with one other from the Notch up while the other three descended the MR while we descended the on the main trail.

It involved us being kinda sketched out and not being able to descend back to them, attaching the one map we had to a small rock, trying to throw it to them and having it miss and end up 2000 feet below.

Did this over two days in excellent snow conditions. It was awesome to finally make it after several failed winter attempts. This was my first non-solo trip and I guess that extra motivation finally paid off.

Main trail, overnight at Outpost Camp. LONG slog up (15 mile RT). Hard packed snow/ice on "99 switchbacks", other snow/ice up to Outpost Camp and after John Muir trail (around back of whitney). Need crampons. Very windy (up to 50 mph) but not too cold. Some snow this morning. Road to Whitney Portal ok (ignore the road closed sign) and save yourself an additional 4 miles of hiking. Conditions may change with incoming storm. No permits required.

Planned to do it a year earlier but it just was not in the cards. Did it as an overnighter. Took 10 hours to get up AND ALMOST 8 TO GET DOWN! It was all and more than advertized. I was actually misty eyed the last 100 yards to the top.
