From LBSL  Sucess!

A little sandy on the way up (which made for a quick descent) so tried to stay on the more solid Class 3 rocks where possible. Amazing views of the Whitney Group from the top.

Stemwinder  Sucess!

Awesome route up the south face. The two crux spots are more mental than anything otherwise this is just an exposed class 3 scramble with spectacular views. As Miguel said, wasted time on the approach with unreachable or cliffed out ledges. Descended via the east gully with the big "chockstone" (the only gully I was trying to miss). Pictures

SE Couloir variation  Sucess!

Started up a chute N. of SE Couloir..eventually traversed into the SE Couloir. Found the register way down in a deep crack where someone had dropped it

SE Couloir - Down the North Fork  Sucess!


Terrific snow climb up the SE couloir and across the summit plateau. Some mixed snow/rock scrambling near the summit. We glissaded most of the way down to LBSL. Great day! Went with mtndonkey.

From Lower Boyscout  Sucess!

An easy snow climb up from the lake to the peak in the ever softening snow and then a fun snowboard down.

Secret Route  Sucess!

An early winter storm led to a beautiful white ascent from LBL up the "Secret Route". 30+ hikers on the summit for a memorial. Not a dry eye there.

Smiley Face

Climbed with the Whitney Message Board people. Ran into some hard packed snow so didn't summit. Got some great pictures, and I shall return next year when there is no snow.

Stemwinder (I, 5.4)  Sucess!

Climbed with Laura Molnar; led all pitches.

The 5.4 chimney and the class 4 slab traverse were the most stimulating parts of this route. There was some class 4-ish stuff in between on funky rock that we also roped up for - maybe we were off-route there, but it was fun. Otherwise lots of third class.

Didn't bother to tag summit. Descended SE couloir (loose). Perfect day.

death  Sucess!

came this (pinching forefinger and thumb tightly together) close to death as I came down some class 4/5 stuff with snow/ice, slipped, took a fall (don't remember how long) and landed on a tiny ledge.

Terrific views of the Whitney area.

Is gazing at Whitney better than climbing Whitney?  Sucess!

Finally started at 10AM after obtaining a North Fork permit from the Inyo NF. Why do I need a day hike permit if there is no quota an the NF has electronic counters on the trail? Because I need a poop bag for a 6 hour hike?

The climb from Lower Boyscout looked worse than it was. I went through the boulder field to the E and then up some class 3, direct to the ridge. Just me and a couple of ravens up top. Followed a use trail to the easier scree chute to the E of my ascent line. It was much easier coming down than I feared.

from LBSL  Sucess!

climbed up scree and talus from LBSL, then long slog to the summit. Fantastic views. Descended a not-recommended chute to the Whitney trail.

From LGSL  Sucess!

Never trust a topo from Waugh! Fortunately Brenda and I lived to tell the tale. Fun hike, beautiful from the lake, descent down the funneling scree chutes kinda sucked.

South side  Sucess!

CLimbed the southwest slopes from Mirror Lake. It turned into a bit of a sufferfest, as there was not nearly enough snow to cover the rocks, and just enough to make walking very difficult. Still, a nice summit with views of the entire Whitney basin.

S. Side from Mirror Lake  Sucess!

Dayhike from Whitney Portal. Went XC from Lone Pine Lk. area, up to Mirror Lk., up slopes, chutes, & snow to summit. Descended N. side to North Fork Lone Pine Ck.
