I reached the summit after 18 days on the John Muir Trail. I started at Curry Village in Yosemite.

Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2012


Fog and light drizzle rolled in as we neared the summit so we couldn't see much...at least it was clear on the way up and I got to see the beautiful orange reflection of the rising sun off the mountain.

Long dayhike with my girlfriend to celebrate our one year anniversary as a couple. I love this trail and I love the energy of the people on it. A special experience.

ScottWhitneyBoundOvernight at Trail Camp  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2014


I did it solo. I camped two nights at Horseshoe Meadows and hiked to Chicken Springs Lake and back to get acclimated. Then backpacked to Trail Camp, got up the next morning and started hiking at 7:25am, summited at 10am after negotiating nearly 3 miles of snow on the trail between Trail Crest and the summit, and made it back to the car by 7pm.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2014


Acclimated at Great Basin Ntl. Park in Nevada for a few days before driving out to Whitney. Day hiked all 22 miles. Gorgeous cloudless day. Probably one of the nicest all summer. Glad I wasn't up there this last weekend with the freak August snowstorm dumping 6-12 inches on much of the High Sierras. A lot of leftover snow up on top. Like every hike I've done at higher altitudes my stomach went into a knot at 13k feet but luckily the feeling went away after 30 or so minutes. Highest I've ever been so far.

Hiked with brother, sister, and father-in-law. Great experience. Stayed at the hostel in Lone Pine.

Rain cloud shroud from 3 a.m. departure at Trail Camp to summit and back. I imagine the views were neat. Bob Ross painted Sequoia Natl' one time so I'll check that.
Amazing time; ignore the sarcasm.

Exhausting! Coming down that trail has to be the worst thing I've ever done, not because of the physical effort, but the amount of painful talus and switchbacks.

braindancerYay Whitney!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 17, 2008


This was our first venture to high(ish) elevation, and it did kick our butt quite a bit. We did this as an overnighter. Couldn't sleep on summit plateau, that made the summit quite a bit more strenuous. 99 switchbacks had a good deal of show but no ice.

Beautiful! Surreal sunrise through the cracks in the ridge after trail crest. Otherworldly look to all of the fractured rock. Perfect amount of wind, swirling mist, clear air and warm sun to finish off an amazing John Muir Trail trip.

Great hike with beautiful views. The hike is easy but very long (which you usually first notice during the descent). We started around 4pm and summited 7 hours later. During the descent we slided down the chute, which was fun and fast.

DarrenKnezekFantastic Climb via the Mountaineer's Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2014


The road was closed by the locked gate just after Lone Pine Campground. It added an extra 2,000 feet of elevation gain as well as 3 more miles. We didn't encounter any snow until around 9,000 feet. We needed snowshoes around Lower Boy Scout Lake. Continued to Upper Boy Scout Lake to camp. Left at 6 am and summites around noon .
A rope and anchor material was nice for the newer members of our group.

Pulled the day permit. 22 grueling round trip miles but totally worth it. Sunrise on the eastern face is nothing short of religious.
