Mount Whitney – Mountaineer’s Route

Climb the highest mountain in the lower 48 states. The Mountaineer’s Route is the original ascent route via the beautiful North Fork of Lone Pine Creek. Much more adventurous than the Mt. Whitney Trail, this route features some real alpine rock climbing up to Class 4.

Access to Mount Whitney is closely regulated and as a result we have limited first-come first-serve availability for mid-summer climbs. We recommend booking early.

The dates we have scheduled here have a minimum of 2 to run and a maximum guiding ratio of 2:1.

Due to COVID-19, this trip is only offered as a Custom Private Trip. Click HERE to arrange climbs on Mt. Whitney on a custom private basis, subject to permit availability. Before July 4th, there is often still snow in the gully which makes the best alpine climbing conditions. After Labor day is also recommended for fewer other groups on the mountain.
