From the Kilns in winter  Sucess!

Spectacular hike to a surprisingly nice summit with commanding views. This was a great way to finish a trip that started with a turn-around on Whitney at 13,200 feet.

From Shorty's Well  Sucess!

Used Mt. Bike from Shorty's Well to the narrows of Hanaupah Canyon, then hiked. Started at 4 am, reached Telescope peak at 1 pm, had lunch, and returned to Shorty's at 6:30 pm. Beautiful day, a little wind on the summit ridge, minor easily-avoidable ice on the final switchbacks.

Started the Trail at 8:50am and reached the summit by 11:50am. little snow til 10,000 feet. last 1000ft had a good amount of snow but 2 of us just wore NF Gortex hiking shoes and 1 had hiking boots and it was no trouble( very little ice). 30min at the summit and back to the car by 2:45pm. Great day for a hike.

Highs and lows of United States  Sucess!

Camped at Mahogany Flats and hiked to the summit with friend Ed and niece Megan as a warm-up climb for Mount Whitney Mountaineer's Route. Pleasant day with great views of Badwater and Mount Whitney. We had the mountain to ourselves. 74 degrees driving back down service road and 114 degrees in Stovepipe Wells just a few miles away.

From Mahogany  Sucess!

Beautiful clouds for the entire morning. This kept the temp down. Hiked from Mahogany with JQ. Hit Rogers and Bennett on the way back. Wildrose the day before.

This was my second time high on the mountain, but my first summit. A couple years ago, I hiked from badwater with friends up the standard ridge from shorty's . . . on reaching the main ridge below the summit of telescope we were too *tired* to go to the top.

Tele and Wildrose Trip  Sucess!

Hit Wildrose and Telescope on a weekend. Mahogany Flat is a nice campground for those who need basic necessities but there are excellent backcountry spots on the trail up to Telescope. This area makes for a great weekend trip.

Camped near top.  Sucess!

I got a late start and did most of the ascent in the dark. My car, being small and vulnerable, made it only to about 5,000'. I camped near a humongous, out-of-place-looking snowfield in a saddle within a mile of 2 of the summit. Great, peaceful, had it to myself.
