Ascent Trip ReportI did this as a backpack trip with John Strauch, Ed Legerton, Jeff Legerton, Neal Matthys, and Ziv Horesh. We started by going over New Army pass, on around thru Cragtree Meadows then up to the Peak and on down to Whitney Portal. Along the way we spent a day exploring the lakes of Miter Basin and another exploring the Crabtree Lakes area. The nite before the Whitney Climb we stayed on a small pond just above Guitar Lake. Awoke very early on a cold dark morning, climbed to Trail Crest, climbed Whitney, returned to the packs and headed down to Outback Camp for our last night. This was a really great backpack and ending it with a climb of Whitney made it all the more special. Passing all the climbers heading up as we were descending to Whitney Portal was a bit depressing though.
