Hiked up the regular trail on a long day almost 20 years ago. What a magical summit view. Even though there were many people, it is just a great place to be. Tired feet on the last few miles down, and stayed in Lone Pine. What a fantastic area to experience. The views of Russell and Williamson are amazing.

nayrbGot Sick 500 Vertical Feet from Summit
Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2008


Climbed w/ my good friend Bill ... and his friend Gary. We came up from the Whitney Portal that morning around 7 AM and made it to Trail Camp pretty quick. After lunch decided to go for summit instead of waiting until 2 AM. After 97-ish switchbacks ... made it to Trail Crest at around 13,600 ft. We crossed by the "windows" and I got sick ... bad headach, dizzy, and sick to my stomach ... my 1st experience w/ AMS. I decided to head down 500 vertical feet from summit. Bill & Gary went on to summit. It was cold & windy. Made it back down to trail camp just before the sun went down. Bill & Gary made it down about 1 hour after the sun went down. I will go back. Great climb & experience though. Note: about 2 hours up the switchback & 1.5 hours from Trail Crest to Summit.

BLongWhitney Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2008


I climbed Mt. Whitney with a good friend / fellow guide on June 27th this year. It was a great trip with some excellent views as the sun rose. Good time despite the heavy traffic.

2011 update: I climbed the east buttress route in late june. Good prep for Mt. Russell.

Cascade Scrambler

Climbed this mountain after having my first shot ripped out from under me by an unethical former climbing partner. This was a great climb with beautiful scenery and lots of great people to meet along the way. Next time, we'll climb a different route to shake things up a bit.

Came up from Guitar Lake off of John Muir Trail. We wanted to climb Langley as well, but we were already behind schedule one day. Ended up coming out at Whitney Portal, with our car still at Horeshoe.

canicholDay hike from Whitney Portal  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 1997


Started the hike at 6am and finished at 7pm after a swim in Lone Pine Lake. Met a bear on the trail - he passed me coming down into the campground, and I watched as he strolled over to the nearest jeep, popped open the unguarded cooler in the back and proceeded to have breakfast. Second time was done in 2002.

Little bro got sick and didn't make it up, bummer. Overall, great time with some good friends. Pizza factory was kinda a pain in the ___ cuz of some crazy kids running around, and they take forever, but the pizza was my savior, as was the hostel shower... Done.

Left at 10pm with some buddies. Awesome ascent but on the way down it seemed that some rascal added an extra 5 miles or so...damn flat switchbacks! Didn't remember them on the way up in the dark.

Did this hike 3 times in the 90's all up the Portal trail, although one time the 98 switchbacks were covered with snow so we had to go straight up. Would like to try the Mountaineers Route some day and also climb Muir.
