Ascent Trip Report

Successful Mount Whitney summit with Emilie! November is a great time to do it (if you're fast) - less people and no permits required. Emilie and I started at 6am and were on the summit by noon. Emilie was really strong on the climb and I was having a hard time keeping up! However, on the descent I think the altitude began to affect her and she struggled to keep her pace. I'm glad we made it down safely and before it was too late (7pm), for a 13 hour day.
