Mount Whitney - Mountaineers' Route

Whitney Portal, California, United States
5.6 miles
On trail by 5:30 AM. Headlamps until the ledges, and then made easy time up to Iceburg Lake. Drinking 2 liters at each lake. Started up toward notch from Iceburg and followed the narrow gully on the left, instead of the larger scree gully on the right. Probably more class 3 climbing than expected at this stage, still fun. Two gullies join halfway up at large boulder and ascent becomes easier. At...

Mt Williamson

Seven Pines, California, United States
26 miles
4 person climb of the West side of Mt Williamson. Started just west of Lone Pine, up  Shepherds Pass across Williamson Bowl and then up the West Face. The final section is a pretty easy class 3 climb for about 50'. Not much exposure for that section. Overall this is a long hike. It is 11 miles to Shepherd's Pass and lots of vertical. Probably the toughest part is the Williamson bowl....

One of the hardest climbs in USA. I and my wife did this route just before the road was closed for winter. We climbed VERY slow, so it wasn't too hard for me. The scenary of Owens Valley and Sierra was breathtaking..
