from WT  Sucess!

Very short diversion. I see a maximum prominence of about 280' above ridgeline. I take it that there isn't a 300' prominence rule for CA 14er's, or perhaps this was a just exception to the rule for a good cause?

From the main Whitney Trail  Sucess!

Climbed from the main trail after climbing the MR up Whitney. Almost made the long hike out the main trail worth it. Almost. Some fun scrambling up to the top.

Route Climbed: East Buttress Date Climbed: June 16, 2007  Sucess!

This is an aweful route. Secor describes it as "a splendid climb." He probably never climbed it. All that we found was choss, loose rock, plants growing in climbing cracks, and talus sliding on top of sand for the class 3 sections. Tried to climb the Misha variation but ended up climbing a differnt hand crack (5.7) to the left. I would not recommend this route to anyone. Climbed with emppeng27 (cool kid)

Day trip with Whitney  Sucess!

Day tripped this along with Whitney in a little under 12hrs car to car. The summit block seemed more challenging than the class 3 I expected After a few tries found a workable line to the top.

Fun Side Trip  Sucess!

It's a fun side trip with a little pucker power. If you've got a extra hour on your Whitney assent you should do it. 2005 was a great snow year.

Stopover on way to Whitney Summit  Sucess!

Whitney Trail  Sucess!

Climbed Muir on the way back down from Whitney. I met awagher on the way up and he and his friends helped coach me up the last move to the summit. I doubt I would have summited had they not been there. I guess I'm just a pansy sometimes.

Day Hike  Sucess!

Nice dayhike. Something like 51/2 hrs from the portal. 8hrs round trip.

Failed attempt :(

I tried to summit Muir and the way back from Whitney, first I summited the wrong peak, then I figured out which one I needed to climb but could not find the class 3 route, started what I figure was a class 4 route and retreated. I was tired and did not feel good about it, next time,

Whitney Trail  Sucess!

Passed it on my 1st trip to Whitney, so went back when I decided to start climbing more 14ers. Fun scramble from the trail. Only a small amount of 3rd class from what I remember.

Route Climbed: Whitney Trail  Sucess!

Stuck 50ft from summit

Dan and I got stuck about 50 feet from the summit and couldn't figure out a way up to the next ledge up. Bob R's photos helped but weren't enough for us gravity challenged hikers. Oh well, we'll try again someday.
