Mount Whitney Trip Report (#8035)
- Signed By: Rich Carlson
- Date submitted: September 16, 2004
We climbed in a group of 6 - all agreed to stick together and not make a race of it. Working on only 4 hours sleep and no stay at elevation. Started out at Whitney Portal at 5am and hit reached the summit at around 2pm. Made it back to the Portal at 9pm. A PERFECT day! No injuries other than some knee pain on the descent, all 6 reached the summit, truly a surprise and a treat! Can't wait to do it again!
