Mount Whitney Trip Report (#8015)

Took the Mountaineer's Route on both trips. I love the Sierra in late February and early March because of the dense snowpack and the lack of people. On the Spring 2000 trip we were a party of three and the only people at Iceberg Lake. Climbed early a.m. to avoid soft snow, and made the summit on both trips in about 2.5 hours. From the notch, we glissaded back down in about 5 minutes. What a hoot!
