I looked up my records. Here is what I found:
4-21-09: Whitney via the MR, Muir, back to Whitney, down the MR, over the saddle NW of Iceberg Lake to Russell, up and down the class 3 south face, and back to camp at Iceberg Lake.
8-10-03: Up the MR almost to Whitney, down the trail to Muir, back to Whitney for real, down the MR, over the saddle NW of Iceberg Lake to Russell, up Russell via the class 3 south face, and then down the east ridge to the car.
9-20-02: Carillon, Russell, up the north face of Whitney almost to the top, Muir, back to Whitney for real, and then down the MR to the car.
Muir gets enough sun that there is rarely ever enough snow on it to be a problem (except for 1-31-93 when it snowed a foot the night before).
I think I saw somewhere that people were doing the MR without any gear. You should confirm that before going.
