Slogged up the NE Slope with Richarp P. Great views, horrible sand slog.
A great ridge climb! Fun partners to boot...Blair and Sheila.
W Double D and Dirty She. Awesome Mountain, Awesome route
Slogged the NW slope with intentions of returning to do the North Ridge. Gotta be one of the loosest crapiest things ever but at least I'll be able to find the way down next time. I feel like such a wuss when the route has the word "slope" in it haha.
day hike-snow conditions, average climb. would like to do NE ridge
Too tired to drink the pale ale waiting from me back at the car :(
Climbed with 2 rope teams of 3. This slowed things down a little. Beautiful ridge climb with great views of the valley.
Dayhike from Meysan Creek TH.
Success with Mike, Miguel, Tony, Joan and Isabelle! Great day, but very long with 2 teams of 3
Long day filled with excitment. I will not soon forget this climb.
On the 4th attempt of the peak I soloed the N. Ridge.
up one of the canyons from the whitney portal road
Attempted the North Ridge of LPP. Attempted the climb from Whitney Portal road to Meysan Lakes Trail after being advised to do so by a local. Wandered and thrashed in the drainage (we started at 1am), thrashed some more, and gave up. Blessing in disguise as winds upward of 70 mph were present on the ridge...definitely will be back for that one!
With Rick Kent, Daniel Torres, and his bud Steven. Descended to Meysan Lake and was able to borrow a car to get back to the "trailhead". Magnificent snow climb. A definite classic.
Climbed with Branch Whitney from North Face. Lots of Class 3-4 scramble. Took more than 6.5 hours to the peak since there was one scramble newbie in the group. This route was fun route if you love scramble hike with exposure.
Dave McLaughlin and I climbed up out of the upper North Fork of Tuttle Creek canyon. There's a steep chute between Peak 3985m and Lone Pine Peak.
Climbed as a day hike from Whitney Portal campground. The slog up the scree of the NW slope was a pain, but the stunning views from the summit made it all worthwhile.
Great long climb.
