Ascent Trip Report

From the Whitney Portal Campground we passed downhill through the summer-home area to the Meysan Lake trail, then followed it to Meysan Lake. From here we accessed and ascended a tiresome chute filled with sand, scree, and talus on the northwest slope of the peak. Once on the summit plateau it was a stroll northeast to the summit.
