    Charmaine Tejada reviewed Mount Whitney via Mount Whitney Trail

    21 days ago

    We hiked Sunday May 27.We started at 2am .The hilly trail 1 mile from the chute is already covered with snow so we just use of microspikes.We arrived at the chute around 9am.Climbing the chute was brutal.Ice axe and crampons is a must. At this time.It took us two hrs just to climb the chute coz the snow is already slushy.Highly recommending climbing the chute early around 6am-7am once the snow is still hard,it’s easier to climb.It was brutal because every step you make you have to spike your ice axe in the snow to prevent your self from falling the steep chute.Once we climbed the chute the 2 Miles to the summit is covered with snow and we have to use crampons because the trail is covered with snow.There’s also snow,gusty wind and thunderstorms when we are approaching the summit.So we weren’t able to take great pictures .Going back the the glisade was so scary but all our fellow hikers are very helpful teaching us patiently about self arrest.If you decide to hike mount Whitney in Alpine condition make sure that you practice self arrest .Fir us we also use our ice ax to control are descend in the chute and use our hiking boots to use it as traction to descend from the use.May Sure you bring layers of clothes coz the weather change in an instant.Oversll the experience is once in a lifetime❤️

    Amazing views of the mountains and canyons.Its’s a very challenging hike with an elevation gain of 4200+ feet.Make sure to start super early .Trekking poles highly recommend.Bring plenty of water and sunblock..Although not a lot of water flowing in the falls it still looks so beautiful.Excellent teaming ground and the view is well worth it.
