Hardly anyone climbing Whitney at all these days due to the cold and icy conditions. You are likely to have the entire mountain to yourself.

We would love to see pictures if you care to share. And don't worry if you only make it half way -- any pictures you take would be fantastic.

Be safe and have a good trip!

gka31, are these your pics on FB? Awesome!!














Some text from FB:
Few pics from this weekend - got blasted by wind on Thor - knocked me off my feet literally, army crawling, etc..

I just used microspikes. The snow was over knee up to midthigh deep a few places, but not consistent enough to warrant snowshoes.

It is VERY solitary! Only one other vehicle, 2 guys headed on the main trail, they also bailed on their mission.

Wind video posted by gka31 on FB.


Caption: Shows the wind knocking me off my feet




Click the picture, it might play. If you don't see the video, try clicking the
diagonal arrows in the lower right corner for full-screen mode. That works in IE.
