Ascent Trip Report

En route to Mammoth to go skiing, we decided to hike to the highpoint!

Parked off Movie Road, and noticed the C-shape of the peak. We took the southernmost gully up because it didn't look quite as steep OR have any overhanging rocks. It was a quick trip up - maybe 20 minutes? .8 miles up to the carin and register. Nate did SOTA and I took a few pictures. BEAUTIFUL views of the Whitney crest, Owens Valley, White Mountains and Lone Pine. Amazing peak - not very many visitors, but still the views were incredible. Took the same route down - total was 1.4 miles and about 40 minutes of hiking. 496 feet of gain, according to Strava. Great hike!
