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.

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.

I went as far as Lower Boy Scout Lake. Snow/Ice stopped me on the way to Thor.

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.

Matt C. and I climbed the mountaineer's route 15 years ago....before there were problems getting permits and before the route was a trail. Just recently climbed Russell (E.R) and had fond memories going up the north fork of lone pine.

better to ski this in powder conditions, given the 6.02x10^23 different bootpacks that go up this line. wanted a switch ski descent, but junky frozen spring conditions forced normal turns, heh.

On our summit day we wound up assisting a party that had a fatality due to an ill-advised attempt to catch the sunset from the summit. RIP.

iditarod81Some sketchy snow, but a great day.  Sucess!

We tried to avoid some of the slush in the notch and wound up on class 4 rock part of the way, so decided to use the highway on the descent. Next time, we'll plan on doing the MR in May or June so we can step into some better snow and perhaps ski down. All in all, it was a fantastic day, though. Great job on route-finding directions, Steve Larson.

Ferocious winds finally calmed down for a afternoon summit from UBSL... great conditions/view/fun!
Sadly, a group we passed on the way down ultimately suffered a fatality while descending the long chute to iceberg lake...
