Ascent Trip Report

This was a Sierra Peaks Section dayhike from Whitney Portal and up to the summit via the class 3 route from Arc Pass, and was led by Igor Mamedalin and Maris Valkass. From Whitney Portal, the group hiked up the Mount Whitney trail to Consultation Lake, circled around the lake's eastern shore, then used crampons and ice axes to ascent to Arc Pass. From the pass, we climbed up talus to near the top of the middle summit, traversed over to a col located between the middle and the higher northern summit, then climbed up to the top of the northern summit. Also, trip stats include an ascent of Mount Irvine.
