Mountaineer’s Route

Located on the northeast side of Mt. Whitney is a chute angled at approximately 25-35 degrees. The route ascends this chute and tops out at a notch about 400 feet below the summit. Here the angle becomes slightly steeper to 40-45 degrees to the summit. This climb offers a much less crowded way of reaching this very popular summit, and beautiful vistas are prevalent throughout.
