Mt. Whitney

August 25-26, 2005

My son Andrew got altitude sick on this climb, so unfortunately I had to turn back with him. Aside from Andrew and me, the rest of the group had a great hike; they went in 6.5 miles from the trailhead at 8300' to the trail camp at 12,100' with full packs. They stayed overnight there, then hit the trail early, and made the 14,497' summit at about 10:45 a.m. They hiked back out that afternoon. Participants were Buzz Blum (Leader), Andy Blum, and successful summitters George Jobanek, Andy Jobanek, Chris Stockdale, and non-Obsidians Heidi and Eric Farry.
