Finally did it!  Sucess!

Perfect conditions, although it felt a bit warm. Drove to the portal, camped at Iceberg one night, summitted and hiked out. We rapped off the summit to the notch instead of downclimbing.
First attempt was two years ago, bailed on our summit to assist with an accident on another team.

Far better than the trail  Sucess!

A somewhat strenuous day hike from the portal(5:00am-3:00pm). It was a fun scramble and not very crowded. I think I saw 5 people on the route total, and one of them was going for Russell not Whitney. When I went down the trail it was a different story. I saw easily over 100 people.

Always a great climb

I have been up the MR many times, all seasons and all conditions and it's always a great climb.

June 2005  Sucess!

Went with a CMC group. Camped at UBSL. Top couple hundred feet of mountaineer's gully was melted out. Final 400 in fine shape, though a bit of scrambling at the start. Descended via the north face traverse.

Great way to get off the beaten path  Sucess!

The route had about 8 inches of fresh pow on it...I think I started 3 separate mini At least the ice at the top was covered up.

fun route  Sucess!

Fun spring route, nothing technical but some nice steep snow at end. Great hike in and a super scenic camp site!

Fall MR  Sucess!

Great conditions on the way up, camped at Upper Boyscout lake and had great snow conditions all the way to the top the next day. That night, not so much. Wind picked up and flattened our tent at 2:00 am. Crappy night of redoing and tightening guylines only to have them rip completely off the tent fabric. Good thing we both had bivy sacks!

MR's  Sucess!

My 2nd summit, and an enjoyable day. Great route and climb, but LOTS of traffic in the final 400' feet. Climbed with a group from SMG who I met on Good times and great conditions. Like to do the route in earlier winter to avoid the crowds though.

MR in March  Sucess!

Great snow conditions and weather. The partially snow-covered rock above the notch was the crux.

Just a few times.  Sucess!

This was the latest, and the first time up in "summer" conditions. Wicked scree but fun scrambling all around. Mostly done in winter/spring. Love the MR/MT loop, especially the glissade down from Trail Crest.
