I climbed the mountain over several days with three friends from the East. We all had altitude sickness, but loved the trail. We had a grand lightning storm, thought we were toast. Spectacular, clear, full-moon night so bright and red I felt like I was on Mars, you could read a book the moon was so bright. Climbed a pinnicle, top was the size of my office desk, a long way down! I enjoyed Whitney so much I named my first daughter after the peak.
