Completed a 5 day backpacking trip. Started at Horseshoe Meadows and went to Soldier Lake, Crabtree Meadows, above Guitar Lake, and then up Whitney and down after spending the night at Trail Camp. Soldier Lake was gorgeous. Trip of a lifetime!

catalyst81Day Hike  Sucess!

First time hiking Whitney was a day hike. Acclimated at the portal for a day with a light hike up to Lone Pine Lake. Visit the lake on your way up - absolutely beautiful! Six in our group and we all made it! Beat the thunderstorms to the summit. A great experience, but 22 miles feels really long for a day hike on the way back.

Climbed late summer of 1998. Could only get a one day permit, so hiked for about 18 hours straight.

Late Spring 2002 - Didn't take any time to acclimate and my brother got real sick at Upper Boyscout. Dayhiked to Iceberg to scout out route for a later attempt.

Late Spring 2003 - Poor snow conditions. Postholing to our waists between Lower and Upper Boyscout.

What an epic mountain in the Eastern Sierra, A must do for all. Take the MR route, worth every bit of extra effort.

Snowsloggertrail hike with bivy  Sucess!

Started up at night, did a brief cold bivy in my jacket (older and smarter now), then continued up trail to summit. Jet flyover was unnerving.

It was extremely windy morning. Some groups have returned at 10am without reaching the summit. We took a late start which unexpectedly was the right thing to do. Got to the summit by 2pm and return to base camp around 4pm

First 14'er. Big snow year as the switchbacks were still covered in snow on Father's Day. Went up snow chute and it was crystal clear day with almost no wind and no clouds. Had summit by ourselves for about 30 minutes. Couldn't have been better! 14 hours RT.

5 feet of snow on the route and extreme winds made this a character building experience.

Climbed Whitney as a day-hike on the Whitney trail. Couldn't ask for better weather, it was clear the entire time and temperatures weren't too cold. Started around 1:30am and returned at 5:30pm if I remember correctly.

A very long day starting at 5:15AM and finishing in complete darkness around 8:00PM. 12 hours round-trip from the parking to the summit and back. Some snow and ice. At least a couple of hours sitting down and waiting for my friends. Exhausting though mostly because of the sheer distance walked (around 32 km).

Long slog up the trail but it was a fun little scramble up Mt. Muir as a detour. Switchbacks were firm but icy in spots with crampons a good idea.
