GigaMikeAlways a great climb


I have been up the MR many times, all seasons and all conditions and it's always a great climb.

Went with a CMC group. Camped at UBSL. Top couple hundred feet of mountaineer's gully was melted out. Final 400 in fine shape, though a bit of scrambling at the start. Descended via the north face traverse.

The route had about 8 inches of fresh pow on it...I think I started 3 separate mini avalanches...fun. At least the ice at the top was covered up.

Fun spring route, nothing technical but some nice steep snow at end. Great hike in and a super scenic camp site!

Great conditions on the way up, camped at Upper Boyscout lake and had great snow conditions all the way to the top the next day. That night, not so much. Wind picked up and flattened our tent at 2:00 am. Crappy night of redoing and tightening guylines only to have them rip completely off the tent fabric. Good thing we both had bivy sacks!

My 2nd summit, and an enjoyable day. Great route and climb, but LOTS of traffic in the final 400' feet. Climbed with a group from SMG who I met on MeetUp.com. Good times and great conditions. Like to do the route in earlier winter to avoid the crowds though.

Great snow conditions and weather. The partially snow-covered rock above the notch was the crux.

This route was the greatest adventure trip that I have ever had in the Sierras. Crazy weather and a spectacular summit day.

This was the latest, and the first time up in "summer" conditions. Wicked scree but fun scrambling all around. Mostly done in winter/spring. Love the MR/MT loop, especially the glissade down from Trail Crest.

Darren9Good stuff  Sucess!


A fun climb in April up the route in snow, some rock to scramble, ice, and a rappel...not to mention a snowstorm to keep things interesting.

LabrancheSpring Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2009


I climbed Mt Whitney with my friend. It was superb. I love that there is nearly no climber on this mountain. The mountaineer's route was beautiful, and fun. The last two hundred feet below the summit were a bit challenging since it was getting late morning and the snow was becoming soft. My best advice is to get an alpine start before the summit push, as the snow will provide more grip.
