Going to Summit June 9 and will head up at 2:00 am. Traveling solo and would love to connect with mid to moderately advanced hiker. I did JMT solo several years ago. I’m 56 year old guy in pretty good shape.

Highest Winter Alt Acclimitization locations (and now)? jaym 05/18/23 07:30 PM
For Whitney and must be car driveable. (On the MR, a guy told me that Horseshoe Meadows was accessable with a motorcycle).

Off the top of my head (Winter):
Mammoth Mountain Inn 8900 feet.
Rock Creek SnoPark 8900 feet.
So Cal: Onyx Summit 8,441 feet.
Iffy, Virginia Lakes. 9750 feet (low snow year).

Currently (this record breaking year):
Whitney Portal (8,300 feet).
White Mountain Road? Looks clear to Sierra View Overlook. Maybe Bristlecone Visitor Center? 10093 feet.

June 19th Jan 05/07/23 02:03 AM

I have a permit to summit Whitney on June 19, 2023 and am just putting this out there to see if anyone else that reads this will be on the mountain the same day. I don't feel comfortable attempting Whitney alone but my partner is not able to make it so I have an extra permit for the 19th and am hoping to find others to join, whether around the trailhead or in advance. I realize there's a slim chance of summitting in June this year but am going to show up anyways, spend the night as close to the trailhead as possible the night before, and feel it out. Worst case scenario, I explore other trails in the Lone Pine area and Alabama Hills. I do have mountaineering experience and proper equipment, but nobody to accompany me for safety. I was on Elbert in November 2022 and hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in February 2023 (alone)....both covered in snow. Thanks in advance!
