Nice to tag  Sucess!

Staying closer to the North Ridge provides one with less loose rock and the occasional cl. 3 scramble. A nice dayhike on the last day of the 2010 Sierra Challenge!

10 for 10  Sucess!

No-brainer on this one: what a grand way to finish the SC 10. Call of the Moose was long and loud from this one. WOOHOO!

what a 'dayhike'  Sucess!

Started at the standard Whitney TH @ 6.14, after insufficient sleep the night before (got to Alabama Hills ~23.00 the night before- ouch). Made good time, finally catching up with the front Challenge group (those guys are fast!). After getting to the basin/plateau below the peak, I decided to take the slabs climber's L of the summit- I think that this greatly reduced the energy waste associated with getting up the thing. Sean (what a machine!) & Bob beat me to the top. Summited @10.24. Ensuing traverse to Russell was sketch.

Slabby North Ridge  Sucess!

Part of a 3-day loop thru the Wallace Lake drainage in/out of the Whitney Portal. Taking full packs over the RC Col was FUN, let me just tell you.
