Mount Whitney Trip Report (#7928)
- Signed By: Jose Manuel Gonzalez of Naucalpan, Mex, Mexico
- Date submitted: July 13, 2004
Summited with my friend Manuel Barbara from Cuernavaca, Mexico on Sunday October 24,1999 via the Mountanners route, camped on Glaciar lake at about 8 PM of Saturday Oct/23 and started from parking lot at about noon of that same day, the mountain was beautiful, the people very friendly and the climb was not technical (except of some ice at the Knotch) but hard, it's about 8 miles and lots of granite all the way, so consider expending and extra night in your way back (we only camped for 1 night), also come after High season, you'll have same nice weather but less crowded.
Beautiful full moon, nice weather, fine climb and incredibley people all the way, THanks California!
