Climbed Whitney as a day hike from the portal, 11 hours round trip. Left the portal at midnight, got to see the sunrise at the summit. Very cold and windy at the summit, the hut was a welcome respite.

MoapaPkTrail slog x2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 1999

I can't believe I've never signed this log. I took the trail route both times, with a detour to Muir.

This certainly isn't my proudest adventure, but I did enjoy the trips, and had many positive interactions along the way.... plus I enjoyed the chance to participate in a "rescue". Hats off to my friends, who did all the lottery stuff. Matt and I ran much of the way down. Wonderful scenery. Perhaps the best value of the experience is to make one realize the price of making things "easy".

What a way to finish the John Muir Trail!!! Amazing views from the top and a perfect way to end a 12 day journey through the sierras on the JMT!

1st successful attempt on the Whitney Trail - had a great time! I'd love to attempt a day hike, but it looks brutal.

Went up again with some friends, it's still a zoo, just more regulated. I can't wait until they fence off the trail margins.

7-day hike, summitted Whitney from Guitar Lake on Day 4 at 8:30 am with mostly sunny conditions. This was my first time in the Sierras. The point was to go backpacking; summitting Whitney was a bonus I'd not previously considered trying before picking this route, since the crowdedness of the dayhike trail seemed a turnoff. Loved Kearsarge and the JMT, especially the Forester Pass part, thought Guitar Lake was too crowded but gorgeous, and thought the PCT south of Crabtree was anticlimactic but our campsites were pretty nice.

Took the two day option with a camp at Trail Camp to acclimate my lowlander lungs. Definitely a zoo but I nicer trip than I imagined it might be.

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.

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.
