Third classed in a day

Made a decision to do this on a lark while a beach BBQ was winding down in Venice Beach. Hopped in the car at 10 p.m., got a few hours zzzs and went for it. An exciting day. Vivid memories of my feet cutting loose in the easy chimney at the end of the Fresh Air Traverse, both hands grapping a chockstone and feeling it wobble in my hands. A great route, but next time I go back with a rope.

East Face = Hella Exciting!  Sucess!

Best climb I've done so far in my short career. Hiked up to Iceberg day one, guide and I smoked the route on day two, back down to the cars in time for burgers...

Awesome Route  Sucess!

A great route with many outstanding pitches. In particular the tower traverse, the fresh air traverse and the chimney pitch!

If I had to choose one,  Sucess!

I would choose the East Face over the East Buttress.

Racing Against Weather  Sucess!

Started from Iceberg Lake before dawn despite somewhat questionable weather. Up and back down by the time the serious weather rolled in. Avoided an epic! Encountered snow, hail and rain that night at Iceberg Lake. Ditched plans on Mount Russell and bailed the next morning.

Bit of a Epic  Sucess!

Looking at the face you'd never guess the route is so easy. Dcurless is right;route on the fresh air traverse can be tricky. I got off route there, took a twenty foot fall, got the rope stuck and burned a few hours before we got back on route.

Mt. Whitney East Face

Great climb. Route finding was a little tricky at "the large ledge". Fresh-air traverse was fun.
