East Ridge  Sucess!

Camped at Upper Boy Scout for East Face on Whitney followed by East Ridge on Russell the following day. Amazing views!!! Loved the small summit to ourselves for admiring Whitney.

South Face, right side  Sucess!

Went up & left at headwall near the top to reach the summit. Couldn't find the route to the right of the headwall.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Day hike of Russell and Whitney together from MR. Tried to add Muir to the list, but scrambled up the wrong peak. There's a phony register on top of one of the unnamed pinnacles near Muir. Someone should remove it.

So Close

We were very close, but felt like things were getting too dicey with the limited day light. I told myself that day that I did not regret turning around.

Winter Attempt To 13,880

Josh Lewis and I made an attempt on the east ridge. According to my GPS we came within 200 vertical feet of the summit. Our decision was based on excessive exposure and 3 hours of daylight remaining. We did Mount Carillon on the way back to camp.

East Ridge  Sucess!

The east-ridge was awesome! Second summit of a great four-peak traverse with Sawtooth Sean. The crux of the day was finding the spot to exit the ridge and drop into the south face gully. Easy to see from below, but harder to see from above. Continued on to Whitney. Trip Report

Mithral Dihedral  Sucess!

Quite a striking route, very memorable experience. Finished despite massive hail storm as we clung to the rock in the middle of the dihedral
