Mount Whitney Trip Report (#7914)

My (then eleven) son Jason and I climbed Mt.Whitney over a two day campout. I was surprised that I was to obtain a permit in Lone Pine after growing up in Colorado without that requirement. The only spot I was concerned about was on the west side approach to the summit bid. My boy was leading with me close behind fearing for "one false move". God was kind to us that day. We hustled off the top quickly because of a fast approaching storm. Just two weeks before, 16 people sitting in the rock shelter at the top, were hit. Only the last one in the group died. I hope to one day revist the summit of Mt. Whitney.
