My wife and I attempted the Main trail on May 22. I made a little video of it. Thought some here would be interested.

alcino, same response as I left at the WPS - very cool! Thanks for posting here. If more folks would glissade the chute like your wife, SAR could take a breather smile .

Nice video, Alcino. Gives people a pretty good picture of what a May hike of Whitney is like.

Glad you had good weather.

Excellent video. Tough decision to turn around on what looked like a beautiful day. Good job. Next time will be a lot easier. Especially if you go sans snow.

Great video! I love your wifes giddy attitude =P just the sort of thing to keep your morale up as you climb!

That snow field on the 99 Switch Backs looked like it would make such a great glisade!
