After work climb: East Buttress Mt. Whitney solo.

Trip: Mt. Whitney - East Buttress

Date: 6/20/2007
Trip Report:
Decided to do this route solo on my way home from work. Left the Portal 5:15 am. Back at Portal a little before 3pm. Plenty of time for a beer and a burger at the Portal store. Faster than I thought, funner than I thought. I always love popping out on the huge flat summit after doing an east face route to amazed looks of the trail hikers .

Gear Notes:
Approach boots, Rock shoes
