Quick shot off the main trail  Sucess!

A quick scramble from Whitney Main Trail to cross off another 14er - too easy.

Many times up to the top. Just a short scramble off of the main trail. Was my 2nd 14er enroute to my third.

John Muir got the shaft when they named this "mountain" for him. It is more of a rocky outcropping of Whitney.

Short scramble from the trail; a little route finding was needed to reach the summit.

Dayhike the up the Mountaineer's Route then down the trail to hit Muir. Overall the day was around 11h30m car to car. Great day!

A real nice distraction on a day on the Whitney trail. Greg P. and I broke from our group to check it out. The last 80 feet are a little bit exposed and interesting, but it is not difficult and the rock is good. A pleasant break from the mundane swtichbacks.

My second 14'er (Shasta was first) and first class 3 climb. Almost gave up 50 feet from the top, but my friend Dave discovered the move needed to continue up the route. Exhilarating summit.

Came up via Whitney MR, wasn't too hard locating the start of the route off the main trail. But we did get a little confused about which was the actual summit. Finally made it. Was quite an interesting summit block.

Fun and straightforward from the trail. It’s gotta be the easiest California 14er.

Muir was the third summit for today's day hike. Russell-Whitney-Muir. Burtal hike on a great day. Nice little class 3-4 scramble at the top.

Great weather and good side trip from the main whitney trail. Like others commented, there were loads of people going past who didn't seem to notice the peak at all.

I took a short diversion on the way back from summitting Whitney. Muir is a bit of a scramble and some exposure. The summit is very small and takes some courage to stand up rather than just sit there.

Third peak in a row where I got too anxious and left the trail too early. As a result, had to traverse over from the horn to the south - still a fun summit block.

Enjoyable but short climb. Made the summit in 2:20 from bivy spot at U. Crabtree lake. Decided the best way up that sand hill is to climb the cliffs (cl.3). Must have watched 30 hikers pass on the trail below that didn't even look up, no wonder this peak is rarely climbed.
