My good friend and first time in the mountain Chris Bourne and I made it the top of the peak on 6-22-07 at 5:22 AM. We departed to the summit from 12k at 1:00 AM. With head lamps and few ounces of water it was very nice climbing during the dark and cool. The east face of the mountain get very hot during the summer time can take a lot out of you. I have always climbed the mountain via the mountaineering route. This was my first time using the Whitney trail. Have fun and keep the mountain clean.....leave no trace.
