Mount Whitney Trip Report (#7856)

Been up Whitney five (5) times now. I rather hold it as a badge of honor that I have never gone UP the switchbacks. Been down them three times when I've come from the JMT (entered Kearsarge Pass), and twice summitted via Mountaineer's Route. This is a wonderful peak. It has been a different experience for me each time, and I suppose that one of these days I will actually succumb to doing it the "regular" way & see what it's like going up those darn switchbacks. Happy Climbing!
