53 times?

that is amazing, Marc.
I don't suppose you have any pics that show your favorite routes?
I mean, do you climb right up the face of those spires in your picture?
Speaking of spires, those remind me a bit of pics I have seen of the Trango group or Patagonia.
Very cool stuff!

Re: 53 times?

Yeah, I hate to admit. Most of those times were day trips to the top and back on the trail, about 22 miles round trip. A few times up the east face, not all that difficult if the easiest route is taken. One time up Muir Peak, the left most spire. A few times up the Mountaineers route on the east side from Iceberg Lake.
I have some photos of climbing it with my wife in winter.
Thousands of people have hiked up Whitney trail. On a busy summer weekend you get hundreds hiking up the trail.
Thanks Tim,
:-)
