This was the best weather I have ever had in my several times on Whitney. Cool, but not cold, light wind, and no haze in the Owens Valley. In August this same year, we had snow. Fantastic weekend outing coming up from the Portal and camping at Trail Camp.

ADK1st time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2008
Hit the switchbacks from Trail Camp at 230 in the morning. My hiking buddy and I thought it be cool to catch the sunrise plus get up the Mountain & back down before it got to late in the day. I am so glad I made the time this year to come up here! Looking forward to a return trip to hike more of the surrounding areas.

June will mark 10 years since I did Whitney. As a delinquet 15 year old I ingnored eating and drinking water at high altitudes, and learned the hard way (projectile vomit at the summit)

On January 18th, 2009 Albert Lin and I made a winter ascent of the East Face of Mount Whitney. We brought a ukulele for moral support. Is that aid?

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.

Made it to the summit, hard time on the ledges, challenging for a novice like me.

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.
