Friday the 13th gave us shooting stars and fantastic weather. My son Jake and I did an MR-MT loop. This was Jake's first time on Whitney. He seemed to know where to go each step of the way and I was chasing him all day. Words can't describe how absolutely cool this day was for both of us.

Proud dad. Son was just as proud that dad was able to keep up with him (sort of):

Goofing around in the north fork just above the ledges:

Jake scrambled up the final 400 like a bighorn. We went left side of the snow field while there was a guided group on the right side boulders.

Almost down the MT while enjoying the ice cold switchbacks spring water:

A great day, can't wait for the next one. But that project is already in the planning stages, the whole family next time!

Very cool James! That had to be something, watching your son scamper up the Final 400 like a mountain goat. Congrats on a smooth summut and an experience that will last a lifetime for you both. The photos tell the story in both of your faces!
