Mountaineer's Route  Sucess!

Saturday, we went from the portal to UBSL, set up camp, and did Mt. Russell via the East Arete. Next day, we did Whitney via the MR. The big gully wasn't bad at all.

Mountaineer's  Sucess!

Ooof. One of those classic "Good route-finding keeps this no more than class 3" sandbaggers. Or, apparently, if you suck at route-finding like we did it's exposed, unprotected 5.0 in light hikers.

Oh well, we got up, we got down safely, we got great pictures and we followed in the footsteps of John Muir. I know that it's just a descent route for most people, but for me it's a climb I've wanted to do since I was 10, so, hey....

Mountaineers Route 4th try  Sucess!

Successfully summited via MR route after 4th try. First time, we went up the wrong drainage (Carillon). Second and third time, we were weathered out. Felt good to finally get this route in. Beautiful day and we had the summit all to ourselves.

Did this in 3 days from the portal. A very fun climb, especially the last bit from the notch to the summit.
