Location: California : High Sierra : 13 - Whitney and Surroundin... : Mt. Whitney : The Mount Whitney Trail

Comments: ***WARNING***

May 24, 2017

Due to the heavy snowpack; alpine conditions currently exist on this trail - possession of an ice-axe, and familiarity with its use should be seriously considered. Crampons/spikes may also be necessary if you'll be out before dawn or after sunset.

  • AVALANCHE DANGER* Due to the heavy snowfall Winter 2016/17 this route had been subjected to avalanches. It may be this way for a while - consider this when attempting the route.

Comments: Substantial snowfall from an atmospheric river event in mid-January has led to a major rock fall on Whitney Portal Road, causing significant damage to an approximately 100-foot stretch of road. This damage may delay the re-opening of the road this spring.
