I'm looking for someone to day climb the East Buttress of Whitney with. Unless we get a snow storm, the plan is to day climb the east butt on Saturday, Sept 29th with a 2:30-3:00AM alpine start from Whitney Portal. All I ask is that you move quickly as I want to get back to the Portal Saturday afternoon for the homemade fries. I've done this route before, BTW.
Update 9/27/07: Russell partner got sick. Staying local.
