Weather was questionable. Thunder & lightning in the forecast. We decided to do the one day climb. Left the crampons & ice axe in the car. The snow in the gully is almost gone. Left Whitney Portal at 4:15am and hit the summit at 11.45am. No view at the top. Descended the main trail...OUCH! Eleven miles of crowded switch backs...beautiful country though...

Climbed the standard trail and came back a year later and did the East Face. I recommend the East Face route more!

The California Clydesdale's (2 45 year old guys that weight 250lbs) were successful this year on Whitney. Last year we were just a lousy mile from the top and had to turn around due to thunderstorms. It was worth going back, we had a great time.
Maybe the Mountaineers route next year!

Took the HST from Crescent Meadows and "ended" on Whitney on the sixth day. Went down to Trail Camp where we hiked out through Whitney Portal on Day 7.

Climbed the main trail in early May over a two day period (I was acclimatizing for a trip to Peru two weeks later). Weather was perfect and the climb was as well, other than a few rogue marmots trying to eat my food.

12 hour car to car hike with Wayne. As one would imagine, the views were wonderful. A great hike!

Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2008


No freak storm this time like on Memorial Day weekend. This time I made it to the summit. It was tough but the scenery was amazing. A couple summitted in the nude in honor of the summer solstice! Unfortunately, a man died of a heart attack on my way down on Sunday; just 2 miles from the Whitney Portal trail head. After at least an hour of hard labor, the rangers were unable to revive him.

After 40 years it seems like only the log book had changed. Oh, and no hippies in the summit shelter on the later visit. If you make the final push past Trail Crest, definitely top Muir on this journey.

Snow in great shape in the morning for climbing and glissading around noon. A few icy spots on the trail in the morning near the railing made the route interesting.

One more time... why not... Great father's day with my son Dorian. Rock steps at the end of the cables had 1 inch of water ice. Impassable without crampons, until enough sunlight allowed someone with crampons to break off. Just to consider if you get there first... Other than that no need for ice axe or crampons. Poles really helped...

I guess you could say this is what got me started in real mountaineering and I am sure my inexperience showed on the Mountaineers Route.

I hiked in a large group of 15 people and only 4 made it to the top. We left Whitney Portal trailhead at 3 am, and were on the trail until evening because of the slower people in the group. It was a great hike, but I am determined to go back on my own and make better time!

Hiked up to Trail Camp yesterday and left for the summit @ 0630 this morning. We climbed the snow chute instead of taking the icy switchbacks. Long day, great hike.
