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.

Summited via Mountaineers Route and descended the main trail, almost no one on the mountian that day! twisted an ankle on the way back which made for a longer time out than expected but incredible experience!

Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2007

On 1.5 hours of sleep, we left the trailhead at 4:30am, summit by 1:15pm. Crampons were required on the switchbacks after the cables and we took them off after reaching Trail Crest. It was nice having the top to ourselves for about 15 minutes, when a pair of marines joined us.

We were back at the car by 6:40pm. Coldest temperature was about 20 degrees around 9am--almost no sun except when above Trail Crest.

Great climb, great view! My best friend and I camped at Iceburg lake and awoke to find beautiful weather with no clouds in the sky. We went up the mountaineer's route with some snow (crampons were helpful, not required) and more wind in the couloir than we imagined. The view was worth the trip!

A nice day with nobody on the summit! There's some snow above Trail Camp, especially on the north facing slopes starting near the cables. The snow was still soft, but you will need crampons when it ices up. It's wise to carry poles, or better yet, an ice axe.
