A great article I recently read that is somewhat Mt. Whitney-related. The author interviews Eberhard Jurgalski (the de facto chronicler of 8,000m peak list completions), Ed Viesturs, and others whilst exploring issues of whether or not climbers actually reach the true summits they lay claim to. A great read via NYT, this is a validated link so it should be viewable sans subscription, please LMK if not.
