I scored 6 permits for a mid-week September climb of Mt. Whitney via the Mountaineer's Route. I tried this unsuccessfully last year in an attempted 2-day climb and found we ran out of time. The plan is to make this a 3-day climb. So we will arrive on Tuesday and camp at the trailhead that evening, reach the upper boyscout lake and camp the Wednesday, summit and return to the upper boyscout lake for an additional night Thursday, then hike out Friday. This should give us plenty of time so we are not scrambling against time, and offer us flexibility based on how the team feels. I plan to bring some snow pickets and a one rope so we can rappel off the steep snow section if desired. So expect some steep snow climbing and downclimbing along with rappelling.
