Steve, please remove me from the Oct calendar. I'm heading up to the Sierra and the Palisades in two weeks.

First post for me here. A friend and I have an overnight permit for Monday October 3. We'll get there Saturday October 1 and hopefully get an o/n permit for Oct 1-2 so we can head up to Outpost and Trail camps for better acclimatization.

I stood on the summit 20 years ago as an unappreciative 20 year old so I'm hoping the weather holds and we make it up on this trip.

We've changed our plans. We're going to stay at Outpost Camp on Sept 29 instead of Horseshoe Meadows. Try to summit on Sept 30, then stay at Trail Camp that night.

I'm new to the forum.

I have a party of 9 that is planning on summiting on the afternoon of October 8th.

4 of us are biking from Badwater (starting on the 7th) and will meet the rest of our our party at the portal and will start hiking the trail from there.

I've only had a brief look around the forum, but this looks like a great resource. I'll plan on taking some take pictures and reporting back with how my trip goes.

I am planning to summit on friday 10/7 solo up the MR from Whitney Portal if I can get an unclaimed permit to do so on thursday.

The weather this weeks looks dicey. I am flying out from RI for this and bringing my full winter mountaineering kit.

-Ben aka NeverlosT


ps. if anyone is thinking of doing the same around that date and is in good/great shape with winter mountaineering experience, I wouldn't mind a partner!

I'm new to the website, so not too savvy on how to post everything. My friend and I are doing a day hike Oct. 7th; think we are leaving around 3:00 A.M. Curious who else is going, since she is a bullet, and I will probably be hiking by myself quite a bit. It would be nice to know there are others around, since I definitely want my photo taken at the top!

Mouse & I will be stomping around this weekend.
No summit attempt until Sat. Should be nice weather, will give a condition report on whatever route is taken.

Cheers & down-filled hugs to all

It is almost time to say adios to this thread. It's been a good season, and we can sure build a calendar again next year.

We'll "unstick" this thread in a couple of days, so it won't be locked at the top of the list of topics.

Hello Joe;

A great time was had by all. I feel sorry for the guys that got stuck climbing around our group of women on the main chute. Topics of discussions got pretty spicy and definitely adult-rated.
Lots of laughing and cussing. See you Friday on Baldy?

You guys have fun. Looks like a really nice day.
