Mount Whitney – Winter!


Climbing Mount Whitney in winter is a big undertaking.  This challenging program takes longer than it would normally in the summer and you carry more gear to be sure that you have everything you need to survive and be comfortable. With heavier packs and formidable conditions you must have excellent fitness and a true spirit of mountaineering adventure to attempt this program. That being said, this is a great season to spend time in this special place.  There are often less people on the mountain and depending on the conditions the snow provides great opportunities for travel that aren’t there in the summer. As in most things in life, the bigger the challenge, the bigger the reward.

The dates we have scheduled here have a minimum of 2 to run and a maximum guiding ratio of 2:1. Click Click here to arrange climbs on Mt. Whitney on a custom private basis, subject to permit availability.
