Ascent Trip Report

Climbed up via the Mountaineers Route from Whitney Portal, decended via the normal route and hit Mount Muir on the way down. Hard ice in the gully neer the summit, really wish I had brought crampons and an ice axe. Beautiful weather! The trip was about 18 miles counting a few accidental detours and took 11 hours 51 minutes.
