Mount Whitney - North Face

Mount Whitney — North Face

A good view of 14,497' Mount Whitney's north face and summit hut, as seen from the top of Mount Williamson. John Muir's Mountaineer's Route enters from the left. Snow coverage this year (2006) was excellent. Whether you go straight up the north chute or traverse across the face, the final 400 vertical feet to Whitney's summit tend to be challenging.
