During the summer Mt. Whitney offers a beautiful route past pine trees, boulders, granite slabs, high alpine meadows, and lakes.
The Mountaineer’s Route offers an opportunity for a climb up slopes that range from 25 to 40 degrees. The terrain is over trails and rock with some interspersed 3rd class climbing requiring the use of hands and feet on good quality granite but the terrain is not considered technical in nature. The first ascent of this route is credited to John Muir in 1873. In addition to being an excellent climb, it is a good time to test and get comfortable with any new equipment you plan to use on future climbs.
