The Mazamas offers a variety of classes for all ability levels. Learn new skills in mountaineering, rock climbing, first aid, ski mountaineering, and more.
Follow in the steps of John Muir as we take his ~220-mile namesake trail from the Yosemite Valley to the top of Mt. Whitney (14,494'), traversing the beautiful and scenic high Sierra's. Highlights of the trek include multiple >10,000' passes, alpine lakes, jaw-dropping scenery, and the summit of Mt Whitney. The 5 to 6 participants will need to be in good physical condition and have experience in at least one 100-mile (or greater) trek and at least one 12,000' peak or pass. We will be traveling light and fast: ~20 miles per day with elevation gains > 5000' on some days and a majority of the hike taking place at over 8000'.
Outing dates are tentative pending obtaining the necessary permit. More information on dates can be expected in mid-February.
The cost of the outing is $591 to $722 (depending on the number of participants) and does not include airfare. A $120 (member) or $240 (nonmember) deposit will be required upon acceptance.
