Mount Whitney – Video Trip report

September 15th, 2009

I took this hike in September of 2009 with a few friends from Southern California.  This was definitely one that I wanted to check off the list and was glad that my friend Pat had a permit.  I had tried to get a permit via the lottery but  did not have any luck for the dates that I wanted.  Overall the trip was a success.  We all made it to the summit and no one got altitude sickness.  One of our party, Amber, had a knee that was acting up so it took her quite a while to get back down on day two.   I ended up getting back to San Diego around 1:30am after hiking from Trail Camp to the summit, then back to portal.   Day one consisted of driving to the trailhead then hiking to Trail Camp.   Here is the video trip report, I hope you enjoy it.  If you have any questions feel free to drop me a line.  Best of luck if you try to make the summit, it’s well worth the effort.

    I enjoyed your Mount Whitney video trip report! You did an awesome job narrating it as well as photographing it. I would like to sign up with waypoints.

    Thank you,
