Mount Whitney Trip Report (#8036)

Had been snowed out the two years before from Whitney Portal. This trip started at the Forks of the Kern River above Johnsondale. Hiked for 8 days up the Kern then up Whitney from the west side. The excitement at finally reaching the summit was tempered by the amount of grafitti on the rocks on top. I couldn't believe that someone had the foresite and energy to do something like that.
