Can't wait to go back  Sucess!

Made it to High Camp and spent the night, followed by going to the summit early the next morning and collecting our tent on the way back down. Awesome experience, and I can't wait to do it again someday.

North Face via the Mountaineers  Sucess!

Gimpilator, Michael and I climbed this as a 4 day trip, but climbed Carillion and attempted Russel along the way. At first we were on the mountaineers route, but ended up on the North Face due to some icy slope.

Winter Ascent  Sucess!

We spent 3 nights above 11,000 feet. We did Carillon, attempted the east ridge of Russell and finished with the Mountaineers Route. Significant ice flows forced us to make large detours in three places on the route.

1985  Sucess!

With brother Jon and a friend. Took the long way in, backpacking from Sequoia National Park. Had the trail pretty much to ourselves until the descent down the east side -- which was so crowded I doubt I'll ever do it again.

North Face  Sucess!

Whitney was the third summit of a great four-peak traverse with Sawtooth Sean. Climbed the north face after Russell. Last summit group of the day, lucked out and had the highpoint to ourselves. In the end, our day was 15 hours, 17 miles, 8500’ elevation gain. Awesome day. Trip Report

Mountaineer's Route in the Snow  Sucess!

We planned to camp on the way, but we made good time and the snow was good all day. Summited pretty late that day and hiked out in the dark. At the notch, I turned left and took the steep route to the summit, but I took the traverse on the way back to the notch.

MR route  Sucess!

MR route with my wife. We only saw some people in the distance, so we practically had the route for ourselves. A very nice mixed climb, with some easy rock and a pretty steep couloir under the summitplateau. The summit is a little bit disappointing, it looks much more spectacular from below, but it was nice and warm and we sunbaked for an hour. The descent was pretty cool. We glisaded down a great part of the normal route.
Pretty long day-hike.

Mt. Whitney!  Sucess!

Did the mountaineer's route in one day with my buddy Jason. Left at midnight and got to the couloir by sunrise and the top by 9am. We would have gone much faster but once the sun came up the cameras came out and we took tons of shots. This mountain is one of my favorites. Love you Whitney!

Finally got permits. Bad conditions at UBSL in the morning (hail, etc), so didn't summit.

MBFN  Sucess!

North fork trail on a very dry, snow-less day. Climbed it again the next year in early March. Tons of snow and had to hike 4 miles up the portal road just to get to the trail head...there was a rockslide covering the road. On the way down from the summit we came found a woman at the top of the notch who had passed out from apparent dehydration and/or altitude sickness. With the help of 4 other climbers we were able to lower her by rope then carry her to iceberg lake where we left her with a rescue team. This was supposed to be a quick day trip...we ended up hiking/climbing for 23 hours straight and with the rock slide it was about 20 miles roundtrip.

First 14er  Sucess!

I was in high school. My dad and I could not get an overnight permit. So we did the day hike. It was beautiful. I really wanted to do it from the West as a backpack trip after looking off the summit.
