Scrambled up from Trail Camp. Went around to the NW corner, then scrambled up. Descended the same way. GPS tracks Up and down in like 56 minutes.

CWesselsSouth Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2016


From Trail Camp en-route to Whitney. I climbed to the left of the chimney, directly against the vertical head-wall (on the west side of the south face). Like the chimney, it's class 3 to 4 here (though Secor says it's just cl. 3). This is a very nice climb, reminiscent of Mt. Muir; it's steep and quite exposed, but with solid rock, plenty of holds, and many different line options (some considerably harder than others). I enjoyed this climb very much, and recommend it to anyone comfortable on class 4 terrain. (If it really is just cl. 3 as Secor says, it surely is at the upper end of that class' steepness and difficulty.)

mrchad9Side trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 2, 2013


Quick side trip up the NE Ridge on my way back to camp between UBSL and Iceberg Lake after a loop up the Mountaineer's Route and then Muir earlier in the day. Getting back over Pinnacle Ridge in winter conditions was not the best!

Straight up from Trail Camp on the way up Whitney with my wife. Bypassed the chimney on the left with some exposed cl.4 moves but it also bypassed the scree slope. Descended on west side and hopped back on the trail at about switchback 15.

An old favorite - I have climbed it six times, mostly as a slight deviation on my way down from Mt. Whitney. However, the last time I did it I proceeded from Wotans Throne to Pinnacle Pass. I climbed the pass, and once on the north side of Pinnacle Ridge, I climbed Thor Peak on my way back to Whitney Portal.
