Hiking and Climbing Mount Whitney within the Mountaineer's Route in the Winter.

About Mount Whitney

Climbing the Mountaineer's Route on Mt. Whitney provides a challenging alternate route to the summit, separate from the main trail that most hikers take. Climbing it in the winter, or in the spring after a snow (our conditions) can be an especially enjoyable, but potentially dangerous endevour.

Mt. Whitney rises 14,494 feet (or more depending about the source) above sea level, making it the highest peak in the "lower 48" states. Many hikers each year get permits to ascend and most do it by way of the main trail that winds from the Whitney Portal at an altitude of 8,360 feet to the summit. Taking this route leads you up 11 miles of trail, making the roundtrip 22 miles. Each year, hikers challenge themselves to do this in a day and some succeed.

The Mountaineer's Route also leads from the Portal to the summit, but does it in less than 5 miles. Obviously, it's quite steep in spots to reach the top in less than half the distance of the trail.

It's been a few years since I've been around the Mountaineer's Route, and some details are fuzzy, but some highlights stick with me and are shared here. There are many good guidebooks that give specific info about the climb. If you plan an ascent, read it and reread it until the route is memorized and imprinted in your mind.

Obtaining a Permit for Mt. Whitney and Getting There.

The portal road to Mount Whitney is accessed from Highway 395 in Lone Pine, CA. But before you can go, you need a permit. Permits are required to use the Mt. Whitney Trail, but it's a bit more confusing for the Mountaineer's Route and requirements seem to change from time to time. The best bet is to call 760-873-2483 up to 6 months in advance and ask what your requirements are. There is a permit quota from May 1 to November 1 for the peak climbing season. You may require a permit by lottery for a day hike but not for an overnight trip about the Mountaineer's Route.

According to the USDA Forest Service Website...

"Wilderness permits are required year-round for all visitors entering the Mt Whitney Zone. Reservations are only available for trips that begin during the quota period, from May 1 through November 1.
Day Use Permit: If the entire trip will be on one calendar date and you will enter the Mt. Whitney Zone, a Day Use permit is required. Day Use includes all routes (access to Mountaineer s Route, East Face/Buttress routes, Mt Russell). No consecutive day use, if trip is more than one calendar date an Overnight permit is required.
Overnight permit (can be multi-night): Trips lasting one night or more that start to the Mt. Whitney trail require an Overnight permit. This includes trips that will end elsewhere (i.e. Pacific Crest and John Muir trails). Day permit can not be used as part of an overnight trip to pass through the area. Mt Whitney Overnight use does not include all routes. Entry via North Fork of Lone Pine Creek to access the Mountaineer s Route, East Face /Buttress, & Mt. Russell is a different permit (NOT in lottery)."

We (two of us) climbed in April so, as instructed previously, we walked into the ranger station, filled out our self-issued overnight permit, wrote our name and route in the book and took off. The station was open, but no one was there.

Get a good guidebook that describes the route well. Memorize the photos and descriptions and copy those pages to bring along.

The Mountaineer's Route

**Mountain climbing and climbing are dangerous activities, be prepared and stay within the limits of your ability at all times**

You should not attempt the Mountaineer's Route on Whitney in the wintertime if you are not skilled at route finding and climbing. You should also be in very good physical condition and have time to acclimitize to altitude. It is likely that crampons and an ice axe will be required. You should carry climbing rope, even though you may not need it - some people choose to rope up in the couloir or notch at the top where it gets quite steep. Do not go alone and have a guide or experienced climber in your group. Have a plan but be ready to abandon it if weather conditions are not favorable.

Your climb will start officially at the parking lot at the end of the portal road. Please be advised that the road may be closed in the winter, meaning you can add several miles to your approach if you have to park before the closure and walk in. The road is not plowed and is subject to avalanche and rockfall so if you take your car around the closure (which people do), be aware that you may not get your car back until spring (which is known to happen) or it may be damaged in your absence.

From the portal road, the trail starts to the same path as the main Mount Whitney Trail (called the 'highway' due to the large number of hikers that can be found on it in the summer) but does not follow it for long.

Soon, you will break from the main trail when you see a sign for the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek. After crossing the creek,the trail becomes steep and you follow a valley until the next landmark, the Ebersbacher Ledges. It can be difficult to locate the short chute that you must climb to get up over the ledge (we missed this once when it was snowing).

Ebersbacher Ledges to Lower Boy Scout Lake

The guidebook that we used said to look for a lone pine tree on a rock as the marker for the entrance to the ledges. Sounds easy enough, but when you are there, it kind of all looks the same, and it looks different with snow falling too. There are lots of pine trees around the ledge rocks. Once you see "the one", it's more obvious, but we were deceived and took a wrong entrance and had to backtrack a bit. It looks different when it's snowing and you have no path or tracks to follow. Once we found the entrance we knew it was the right one as we had to climb a chute (that we were looking for) to get up onto the ledges. It's not hard climbing (called class 3) but it was higher and steeper than I thought it might be.

The ledges actually have some exposure and can be quite frightening. They are wide enough to walk on, but I could see someone getting hurt if they were fatigued or light-headed from the altitude. There are places where the ledge is barely over a foot wide, with a steep, high cliff on one side and a rock wall to the other side. With a wide pack, you might feel like there isn't much space to maneuver. A lot of people keep a hand about the wall and turn in a bit toward it. Follow the ledges until they end. A trail from there will lead you steeply up to Lower Boy Scout Lake.

Lower Boy Scout Lake, Upper Boy Scout Lake and Iceberg Lake

Lower Boy Scout Lake is at about 10,400 feet of elevation. If you are doing a multi-day climb and are not acclimitized to altitude, you may decide to spend your first night here to avoid altitude sickness.

From Lower Boy Scout Lake, you will next ascend to Upper Boy Scout Lake about 1000 feet higher at 11,300 feet. Upper Boy Scout Lake is also a good place to camp. If you live at sea level, however and are not an experienced mountaineer, descend to camp at Lower Boy Scout Lake. If you are not acclimitized, you should plan on taking several days for the climb to avoid having to turn back from altitude illness.

If you are acclimitized and are doing the trip in just 2 days (our itinerary), then Iceberg Lake is a great place to camp as it makes the summit climb easier the next day. Be warned, even with mild winter temperatures at lower altitudes, camping at Iceberg Lake is cold. At 11,860 feet, the air is thin and frozen in the winter. The area around the lake is not sheltered and can be quite windy, adding to the discomfort. Try to find a camp site that is at least partially sheltered by a rock. If there are other groups and you are not up there by early evening, you may be out of luck as these spots are rare and coveted.

Summit Climb on Mount Whitney Mountaineer's Route

From Iceberg Lake, it's pretty easy to see the line to the summit up the East Couloir into the North Chute to the top. Getting there is quite an adventure - too much snow and the steps become slow and painful as you post-hole and expend quite a bit of effort to get one leg in front of the other. Ice is obviously dangerous and fatalities have occurred when a slip was followed by the inability to self-arrest due to ice. No snow, such as during summer, gives you loose scree, sand and talus and can send mini-rock slides to the climbers below and make footing difficult.

The Summit and Descent

When you get to the top, enjoy the feeling of standing to the highest point in the contiguous United States. The building you see up there was built in the early 1900s for altitude research. Near there is the summit register - make sure to sign it and take some photos. For some reason we took very few photos the entire trip. If I go back, I will be sure to photograph the important landmarks and more about the summit.

As is always true, when you are about the summit, your journey is only half done. For sure, the 6000 foot descent to the portal is less physically strenuous but can be as dangerous if not more so. Many climbers, especially the inexperienced, lose focus. In addition, you are mentally tired and probably haven't slept well in your time over the mountain. The altitude and dehydration can take their toll. You must force yourself to stay alert, take each step carefully and not be too 'sloppy' as you head back down the mountain. The chute, couloir and the ledges require concentration, so before heading into these descents, it's best to take a short rest and drink some water or electrolyte drink and have a snack.

This is not the most difficult mountaineering trail in the U.S. or even California, but it is very satisfying to have done it. Be prepared, be flexible, be strong and be careful!

A Few Notes about Our Climb

Month: April

Unsuccessful Attempts: Prior November- turned back at the portal because climbers coming out reported below zero temps and 60 mph winds. Portal road closed which would have added 6 miles to the trip. Went skiing at Mammoth instead.

Rate of Ascent: 1000 vertical feet an hour. Husband trained marines before me and held me to that standard - personal challenge for me achieved. Rest periods as needed.

Conditions: Fresh snow made for some deep postholing and slow going part of the way up the canyon to the ledges and above them. It was snowing lightly with light to moderate winds for our climb.

Pack: 42 pounds, ice axe, crampons, emergency supplies, blister bandages, etc.

Day 1: Portal to Iceberg Lake, got last spot near a rock for some shelter.

Day 2: Iceberg Lake to summit, return to Iceberg Lake, pack up, out to portal. Long day.

Biggest Challenge: Forcing hydration and food. I had no interest in drinking cold fluids in the cold air, but knew it was necessary. Mild nausea made eating and drinking even more difficult. It took too much precious energy to eat snickers bar or protein bar.

Acclimitization: Other lower climbs as training. Spent night before at Bridgeport, CA. Took Diamox (acetazolamide) to help with altitude sickness.

Physical Preparation: Months of running 2-4 miles/day, weight training, stair stepper several times a week, sometimes with a weighted pack.

Helping the Homeless Advice

I was studying a tale penned by a further Hubber and that i was compelled to jot down this. I've lived tenting over a pals home in advance of, by option. We moved into a new space and right until we could obtain careers as well as a dwelling, we selected to are living by doing this. We experienced a tent and our van, a river flowed by and we ended up invited around use their washroom, independent within the dwelling, any time. We weren't fairly like these homeless folks, as we did it by alternative and experienced funds coming in with the time. The majority of these persons don't. We experienced a spot to camp, authorization in the owner's to create a hearth, and tenting gear. We have been wealthy.

We all truly feel the urge that will help people today whenever we see they need assistance. It reveals that all of us treatment about other people. The homeless are escalating in quantity which bothers numerous of us which have a spot to contact household and a few balance. We would like to help you them in the constructive way, but numerous would not have any tips regarding how to aid. I am aware of quite a few methods to support and want to share them along with you.

I would also love to indicate that each one homeless usually are not helpless or benign. A fantastic approach to assist a benign 1 or maybe any of these is usually to talk to a law enforcement officer. They'll steer you very clear from the types you'll want to keep away from plus some in the officers will supply a bag or two for yourself. This retains you harmless and alive. Many of them will rob you and many will just flat eliminate you.

Some metropolitan areas and counties don't set up with homeless persons. They'll operate them off or arrest them for vagrancy. The law enforcement can't be counted on that can help you in these spots. You will find generally individuals who do the job among the the homeless even though and finding 1 of these is typically pretty really hard. It can be well worth it however once you do mainly because they're a fount of knowledge find out exactly what the men and women really want and just how finest to help you them. Your route could possibly be as simple as donating to the shelter or as elaborate as volunteering in a single.


Food is without doubt one of the massive concerns. Should they don't have any dwelling, they don't use a fridge. They don't have got a stove and may not have got a position they will commence a hearth to warmth their food items.

This will make acquiring food items for them complicated. A lot of rapidly meals chains have reward playing cards for various quantities. Purchasing a $5 present card is really a great way for getting foods for them. They're able to utilize it once they are hungry and acquire a sizzling food or anything off of your greenback menus. They are going to find a way to take a seat inside of for some time away from the weather conditions whilst they take in. This could be excellent for the duration of a thunder storm, snowstorm, extraordinary chilly, or intense warmth. They might get drinking water with ice in it to chill off. They might receive a cup of espresso to heat up. It presents them a lot of issues that are regular for us but a minute of luxurious for them.

Going towards the food market and choosing up some non-perishable issues for them to consume and consume is usually a superb answer. Don't forget, no fridges. Canned meals would be the very best. Test to search out factors which may be heated but may be eaten without the need of heating. Pop-tops are excellent since they might not have got a can opener possibly. Tuna, vienna sausages, crackers, fruit, any style climbing food stuff, and canned rooster are all alternatives. Cheese crackers, peanut butter, and a lot more crackers. The consume mixes that go in a very bottle of drinking water to become shaken up are welcome. Would you want to consume just h2o continuously? Containers of nuts, dried fruit, raisins, cereals that happen to be substantial in taste, very low in fat, and possess a great vitamin depend can also be superior. They may be eaten suitable from the bag. Vegetable juices in modest cans are welcome. We also need to attempt to provide the fundamental foodstuff teams, this aids continue to keep them wholesome. Every time they get unwell, they're a lot more susceptible.


Clothing which happens to be seasonally acceptable can also be appreciated. How would you want to own merely a flannel shirt or thermal shirt to use through the summertime. Or even a mild cotton shirt during the wintertime. You can find more than enough thrift stores in the majority of cities to seek out one thing inexpensively. We also experience our outfits every yr to discover factors which will not healthy or we have been just way too uninterested in. I've a teenaged daughter that is nonetheless rising, we drop some weight or get pounds. Give these clothing to persons in have to have. Will not give a lot of to every human being, a pair of shirts every single. Distribute them all-around, you can find lots in require plus they do not have anyplace to shop these items. Anything to have on although they rinse another thing out and enable it dry is sweet even though.

Blankets are welcome. Padding to rest on in summertime and heat to curve up in all through the wintertime. I've acquired some pleasant blankets at lawn profits for $1. In the event the folks really know what you might be carrying out with them, they may generally provide them with to you personally.

As found over, sneakers and socks absolutely are a huge offer. It's not at all simple to determine dimensions. Also little doesn't perform. Also big just isn't straightforward to generate get the job done. The only real way I am aware is usually to request them. That may be why I do the job with a person man or woman.


Keeping thoroughly clean is difficult any time you really don't also have a rest room. The wants for exactly where these consumers are being is variable. I understand that in the event you are tenting out inside the woods beside a creek, you will end up capable of hold cleaner than in the event you are wandering the town streets and alleys.

Bars of cleaning soap are very best for laundry up. Liquid cleaning soap is de facto good however it isn't going to very last as prolonged. They might clean something with it, from their faces for their dresses. Additionally it is smaller sized, and lighter. Sample dimensions bottles of shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and no matter what else you'd use tenting. Tiny hairbrushes, combs, and disposable razors. Whenever they are clear, they don't get operate away from rapidly food stuff spots, Wal-mart or grocery shops as rapidly. These are typically the sites the place they visit get from the climate. I purchase toothbrushes at greenback shops for extremely tiny. They arrive in significant packs of six or eight.


The volume that you just commit is nearly you. Will not get carried absent otherwise you are going to be in hassle. Make a decision on an total which you can pay for and adhere to it. A lot of persons are assisting these folks and it is not going to assistance any person should you enable oneself outside of your property. I individually possess a $10 per month restrict. I just do what I'm able to. It truly is appreciated through the male I assist. I assist the identical one particular on a regular basis. You might opt for that will help unique types. I even aided him receive a position. I read of a thing that he could do and tracked him down. He's now functioning twenty hrs each week. Not just as much as we could want but it surely helps. He could get for the laundromat and clean his dresses, invest in some food stuff of his individual and it is going up. He's tenting now, in the tent he was offered, about the home of his new manager.


Helping these in want is important to be able to maintain our humanity. Assistance the place you may but watch out and check out never to get harm. Usually do not sacrifice your very own wellbeing, dwelling or existence to assist. Seasonal assistance is the very best support. Serving to them continue to be clean up, fed and nutritious is among the most vital. These could be their way out. Never provide them with income until you are aware of the individual very well ample to find out they're not heading to purchase alcoholic beverages or prescription drugs. A lot of will and that's why they're about the streets.

I have currently experienced a pair of good friends indicate to me that alcoholic beverages and medicines are something which people today that are homeless, seem ahead to. Also, the road is not any location to detox. I depart it approximately you to definitely make your mind up this on your own. The choice to offer them hard cash, liquor or cigarettes is actually a own final decision. Give it imagined and find out if it bothers you.

I was honored to earn a HubNugget, renamed to Increasing Star award for this Hub in Oct, 2011. I'd personally wish to thank every person who voted for me to acquire this. It absolutely was a terrific honor which can be a deserving Hub. I hope it can help lots of individuals to assist and have assistance.

Please make sure to vote. I actually recognize the responses which i get on my hubs. They assist me find out if I'm producing handy, exciting, useful hubs. Should you want to use info on these, you should request and remember to attribute. This is copyrighted function.

Guide to tenting in a new music festival

A guideline to tenting in a songs festival

Here is my speedy guideline to tenting in a muisc competition; what to consider, what to not acquire and what to anticipate (the unanticipated!). Accomplished accurately tenting in a new music competition is an extremely satisfying and entertaining working experience, accomplished improperly it truly is not comfortable, monotonous and pointless.

1. Take a look at the tent

Put it up, get it down, place it up, just take it down. Repeat as essential. This makes certain that a) you might have all of the items demanded to place your tent* up and b) that you choose to can set it up promptly; therefore attending to the exciting element more rapidly (or evading the rain should you be unfortunate).

* Maybe I ought to acquire my very own information: this 12 months I packed my luggage and failed to even test the tent bag - I did not have any tent poles! Fortunately my buddy experienced a complete spare tent!

2. Never be scared to around pack

Especially in case you can depart things in somebodies automobile inside the auto park. Received that close friend who will rock approximately the gate with absolutely nothing even so the garments on his again, beer and his ticket? Yep, appears to be like hardcore. For now!

You could at the same time pack further bits of foods, medications and creature comforts and never utilize them than pack frivolously and come across your self developing a makeshift pillow outside of your backpack along with a hoodie*.

*Yep I have also accomplished this.

3. Buddies: the greater the merrier

Get a bunch, a huge team. Its additional hard to organise everybody and come across an area to camp in, but its surely value it. You will normally have another person to get together with, someone that wants the john, a person who would like to choose a wander. As soon as you happen to be during the arena and folks need to see unique bands; you will however have anyone to hold with then as well.

You'll also discover that assets could be pooled (do not forget to chip in!), to ensure factor you forgot? Somebody may need it to suit your needs..

4. Cooking with fuel (or not)

Since competition food stuff is so high priced, frequently provides little parts and is particularly of doubtful good quality you should think of earning a significant exertion to prepare dinner your individual meals.

Bring transportable barbecues, tongs, bread buns and cargo the neat box up with meat and ice packs. A term of warning below - meat will only preserve for thus extensive while in the great box prior to it gets to be unsafe to consume and, as at any time, prepare dinner it by means of completely just before feeding on.

Half Moon Bay's Jumping Dolphins

Fifty percent Moon Bay s Jumping Dolphins

Anne had been on me for the last four weeks to spend a day at 50 percent Moon Bay, and get out of the Valley heat, but something got in the way each time that we planned to go. Today, Saturday, is perfect. We leave the house at about ten A. M. and believe it or not here in early September we run into a thundershower with sleet, and driving rain and lightening. But, it s a great day for driving with hardly any traffic.

When we get to Dunne s Beach, it is over cast with a slight mist coming down. I figure Anne won t want to stay, and as I walk to the rest room, I figure I ll take a walk down the beach before we leave. To my surprise, when I get back to the car, Anne has everything unloaded. I go back to pay the parking fee. It s gone up since last time we were here from six dollars to nine dollars for seniors. With the state short fall they need all the parks need all the money they can get. It s well worth it, I tell myself.

When we get down to the beach, we find that it is almost empty. Waves are pounding the sand some over five feet high. As we head for our spot we see a dead seal just above the water line. There is a slight stench from it as we walk by. We reach our spot a short distance from the path in a little cove like area and set up our chairs and Anne s umbrella. A lifeguard s jeep comes by and stops not far from us. He sees me hang a garbage bag on Anne s chair and gives me a thumb s up which I return. A female naturalist gets out of the jeep and heads over to examine the dead seal.

I get settled in my chair with my coffee and a blue berry muffin, and watch the waves roll in. “Is that a surfer or a sea lion,” I ask Anne as I point to a little back spot to our left. Two black spots appear between the next set of waves. “I think they re dolphins,” I tell Anne. As I look more closely at the little black heads, several more appear, and then still more. Soon there are a dozen are more. And then a couple jump out of the water. “Wow, did you see that?” I ask Anne pointing to our right.

“Where? Where?” she asks and follows my pointing finger.

“There must be a dozen or more,” I tell her.

“Oh, yea. I see them. I wish I had brought my binoculars,” Anne tells me as we watch until they disappear behind a huge wave. The waves continue to beat on the sand getting higher and higher. The naturalist turns over the dead seal and begins to examine it. “Oh, I wouldn t want that job,” Anne tells me. When the naturalist leaves, Anne walks over and takes a picture of the seal with her cellular phone. “I ll e-mail it to Nattie,” she tells me.

I settle back in my chair as the waves continue to beat on the shore. I follow them all the way up the beach. To the north, some are ten feet or more. I ve never seen them this high before in all our thirty years of coming here, I tell myself as I close my eyes and listen to the pounding of the surf. I try to shut off all thought and remember myself for several long minutes. The cry of a sea gull draws my attention. I open my eyes and watch a flight of seven pelicans make their way southward. The water creeps closer to our spot. “The tide must be coming in,” I tell Anne.

“Where did the dolphins go,” she asks.

“I don t know. They re still out there,” I say as I strain my eyes looking for them. “Do you realize how much of the beach has washed away? I mean, we re sitting almost against the cliff and the water s only six or eight feet away. Remember we use to sit maybe twenty feet away from this spot…”

“Yea, and that wasn t too long ago. When Jake and Bella use to dig in the sand,” Anne answers.

The waves continue to wash the shore sending a soft spray over the beach. I settle back and close my eyes. Shutting off all thought, I focus on the blackness inside my head. As it grows deeper and deeper, I enter the emptiness and expand with the inner silence. Time stops with only the pounding of waves and the inner emptiness.

“You want to do me a favor,” Anne asks breaking the silence. You wanna go up and get my book?”

“Where is it?”

“I think it s in the side compartment.”

I walk toward the rocky path watching the crashing waves. Passing the dead seal, I hold my breath but still catch a little stench. When I return to our spot I tell Anne that I m going to talk off for my walk. I almost always walk bare footed down the beach, but today I decide to leave on my tennis shoes since it is so damp and chilly. I can already feel the sand that has sifted inside my socks. I head south trying to get to the harder area close to the water while avoiding the wet sand and incoming surf.

A hundred yards or so from our spot, I catch sight of a dozen or more dolphins. I can t believe my eyes, as I stop to watch. More and more little black heads come into view and soon there are fifty or more within my vision. It must be a whole school, I tell myself. Several jump out of the water as I watch open mouthed. A dozen or more pelicans are diving between waves competing with the dolphins for fish. They must be feeding on a school of smaller fish, I tell myself. I scan an area of a fifty- yards or more and see maybe a hundred dolphins appear between they gray and white waves. The surf beats with a steady rhythm. Wow, if only I had my video camera, I m thinking.

Shut off internal dialogue, I tell myself and watch with disbelief as the dolphins continue to jump and frolic. The crash of ten-foot waves, the play of the dolphins, the diving of pelicans, the feel of the misty water holds my attention. Time ticks slowly. Then my body wants to be on the move again. My feet carry toward the rocky cliffs at Miramar, but I keep my head turned toward the dolphins continuing to watch their play. I ought to go back and get Anne. This is a once in a life experience, I tell myself. But, I continue to walk north.

As I move quickly inland to avoid an incoming swell, I come up on a couple with their two little kids. “Did you see the dolphins?” I ask pointing to the water.

“Yea, dolphins,” the guy answers and goes back to digging in the sand.

I still can t believe it. In all our years coming here I ve never seen dolphins or waves this high, I m telling myself.

I feel a buzzing in my pocket and pull out my cell phone. “You won t believe this,” Anne tells me. “There s at least a dozen dolphins out in the water. They re jumping and everything.”

“Yea about a hundred yards from our spot, I saw more than fifty of them. I was gonna come back and get you. It is unbelievable.”

So we spend the rest of the day watching the dolphins, the pelicans, the sea gulls and the ten-foot waves. A dozen or more tiny sea birds quick foot it up the beach pecking into the sand for their evening meal. Just before we pack up to leave several crows land near the dead seal and begin feeding on it. Then, the tide comes in even more and the waves wash the dead seal toward the south end of the beach until it is finally out of sight.

It s a perfect day at 50 % Moon Bay, very few people on the beach, a stormy sea with ten-foot waves, and the beauty of the jumping dolphins.
