Mt. Whitney

Goal: 
Mt. Whitney (14,495)

We will meet at Whitney Portal at 6am on Sat. morning. We will plan to climb the mountain using the standard trail. The round trip to the top and return is about 22 miles. We should get back to our cars shortly after dark. We will have a turn around time to avoid being on the more difficult sections of the trail in the darkness. If there has been significant snow, then it is possible that we will need to carry crampons. This is unlikely. Although crowded this is a climb of great beauty.
