Hey guys, this board was really helpful as I was planning my Mountaineers trip Sep 7th. The resources and advice (especially the trip reports and bob r’s posts).
I ended up packing in a drone and shot this footage (my edit below).Mountaineer’s Route Whitney (Drone E-Ledges / Final 400)
I wanted to do it partially to show people the path along the e-ledges (starts at 45sec). Hopefully it will help people as they plan their own trip. GoPro and drone shots provide a good perspective. I think it will really help people given the perspective. Also, will give a good sense of the final 400 as well. I flew high and far (though, when I was close up, I only flew for a minute or two) to minimize “noise pollution” — also before flying, I asked those around me (there weren’t many) if it would bother them and for permission.
Let me know if there’s a “planning” thread that I should post to.
Hope it’s helpful to someone and enjoyable to all.
