Mt. Whitney Mountaineer's Route
June 5-6, 2004
Sarah Ostapchuk, John Lee, Dave Loring, Dan Stinnette
Hike up the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek to the Mountaineer's Route on
Whitney. Traverse the Whitney -Russell Ridge and climb the south face,
right side of Russell. Descend via the Whitney-Russell ridge and camp at
UBS. Hike out the next morning.
As usual things don't always go as planned. We did summit Mt. Whitney via
the Mountaineer's Route. It was my third attempt in the last 2
years. The two previous times I was turned back by the weather. We
summitted Whitney and Muir, but saved Russell for another day.
