Long Day, Good Day

Scott, Steve and I did the Whitney trail starting at 5:30am returning around 6:30 pm. Great day, perfect cool weather with a fair amount of easy snow.

Trail Route - 1 day ascent  Sucess!

Drove from Denver to Vegas to Whitney Portal. Up at midnight and on the trail; drinking beer at the truck at 5 PM. Awesome peak, and surprisingly, not too crowded this date. Summit view is really something.

Main Trail  Sucess!

Beautiful day, but the trail is just too crowded. I don't think I would do the trail again, but maybe the Mountaineer's Route at some point.

Soloed Mountaineers Route  Sucess!

It was great weather the whole time I was on the mountain. I had planned for four days but it took me less then two. I think the 29 lbs. pack and the great packed down trail help me a little.

Solo on mountaineer's route

Sometmes we go to the mountains to heal, to discover something missing in our lives. This was one of those trips. (I'll mention this column writing is a labor of love. No money for hits. Day job is news director. Anyway here is the story.

Solo on Mount Whitney Trail  Sucess!

Summited via the Whitney trail. I spent four days on the mountian. Recieved two blizzards with 70-80 mph winds, and weather had called for mild and sunny. Had a base camp at Trail Camp. Route up through switchbacks to summit was covered in ice and snow, forming a slope, not a trail.

Whitney Main Trail  Sucess!

Had hoped to do Whitney as an overnight hike, but no luck in the lottery. So opted for a day hike ... one very long day, going up against a harsh headwind. Fantastic views in all directions!

Whitney Portal  Sucess!

We did the relatively easiER trail instead of a climb since we had only one day and I had my wife in tow. She actually towed me up the mountain and then I had to tow her the last few miles out to the car.

MR #3  Sucess!

Summited in superb conditions. Got to Iceberg lake early in the day and spent most of the afternoon hiding from the sun. Didn't even need to don the crampons with the dry conditions the next day.
