On the way to Mount Whitney  Sucess!

I climbed Mount Muir on the way to Mount Whitney. Sometime in 2011, if not 2010.

awesome summit  Sucess!

neat summit and well worth the jaunt from the main Whitney Trail. We left a little too early and had some extra scrambling to reach the summit blocks. There was a register in place in an ammunition box a few feet short of the top, with plenty of recent entries. We found a ridiculous rappel setup someone had rigged with a solid looking webbing and rap ring anchor supporting some small clothesline-type cheap rope. Did someone actually trust their life to this?? Anyhow, there was certainly some exposure, with the easy hands traverse being the key to the climb. Fun!

Finally  Sucess!

I have been trying to reach the summit of this one for 5 years, but have been rejected each year for one reason or another. Summiting from the Whitney trail, I wasn't sure if I needed ropes or not based on other posts. With the posted pics and YouTube videos, it was very straight forward - I was totally fine with no protection.

Last of the 14ers  Sucess!

Stephen's final 14er, now he's done all of them in the Lower 48. We did this from Upper Boyscout, and descended via Whitney/Mountaineers' route.

3rd 14ner  Sucess!

I had to hike two peaks just to find out which was Mt Muir. 3rd class at the top but exposure is limited. Scary suspended rock near the top freaked me out.

Brrr  Sucess!

Temps near freezing but beautiful skies and a nice little climb after the Whitney summit. Met another couple on the trail looking to climb Muir so we did it together. Fun stuff, the class 3 made it enjoyable- short, but sweet climb. Shout out to Kate and AJ

Two Spires  Sucess!

I went up the wrong spire first, so had to back track and traverse over to the right one. It was a rushed affair, as my climbing partner (and girl friend) was waiting at Trail Crest for me. The summit was socked in with clouds. This was a side trip from a day hike of Whitney.

Muir  Sucess!

This peak looks really impressive as you climb up the 99 switchbacks on the main Whitney trail, so I had to do it. I would rate the final part of the climb as hard 3rd class or 4th class. The summit is small, and I was nervous because of some strong wind. Beautiful view.

Something Other Than Whitney!  Sucess!

Spending a windy night at Consultation Lake, Heather and I tagged Keeler and Muir amid 25+mph winds and sub-freezing temps. Loved the 3rd Class but sooo short. :(
