Mount Whitney 2010

A couple of years back some friends and I hiked Mt. Whitney.  We almost summitted. Almost summitting is quite a feat when you consider how unprepared we were.  We committed several cardinal cross country hiking sins (before we knew any better):

  • It ended up snowing (in July!) and we were unprepared for this
  • We were under layered (I had a total of 2, and inner layer was cotton)
  • We had no crampons, ice picks, compass, trail map
  • One of our tents was missing pieces
  • We were very hung over
