Mount Whitney

Mount Whitney Trip Report (#7899)

Took the Whitney Trail. There was still some snow and ice on the switchbacks. Not many people yet. I had the summit to myself. Slid down the chute which saved me about 2 hours. This would be a butt kicker for a day hike, but it is possible. A gal from Colorado said it's tougher than the Colorado 14'ers. I don't think it's as tough as Rainier though. The views are beautiful. Watch out for the marmots. They came in my tent at Trail Camp and ate my toilet paper!
