Hey There, Alpinist wannabe’s like myself.)

I have a Whitney campsite 8-18/8-20 and would like to climb something fun. Thinking along the lines of Lone Pine Peak N Ridge, Candlelight, Thor or Whitney EB or Russell if a W/up permit is available. Alpine start or overnight ok.

Open to options 12k-14k…3rd peakbag - 5.7.

I’m familiar with the area (have done some of the approaches & descents), safe, realistic, and have gear. 

Climbs in the area that I’ve done: Whitney Mountaineer’s Route, LPP N Ridge (want to repeat), Russell E Ridge, Langley.


I’m also hoping to do something BEFORE 8-18. This could include climbing in the Portal area plus a lower peak bagging objective between 10k-12k. We did a fun hike and some bouldering in the area last weekend and conditions are perfect right now with easy water sources. My wife is ok to 10k, but she’s not keen to go higher.

+ for Temple Venusian

Thanks, I would like to build on experience over the next few months. ++ to anyone who would eventually like to do Mithral and/or Dana 3rd Pillar.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
