The Summit of Mt. Whitney is the highest point in the contiguous United States. Both the Whitney East Face or Whitney East Buttress take routes directly to the summit. Both routes are Whitney Sierra Classics. To climb these classics you are required to have solid rock climbing skills, desire and excellent physical conditioning for our three-day adventure on Whitney East Face or Whitney East Buttress. Day one is the approach hike to our base camp with a review of technical climbing techniques or an optional Pre-Climb Rock Clinic the day prior to departure. Day two starts early as we head for the summit via our chosen either the Whitney East Face or Whitney East Buttress and descend back to our base camp via the mountaineer’s route. Day three we descend the scenic hike out to the Whitney Portal Trailhead. Give us a call to schedule a climb for Summer 2019. Reservation Request!
