MT. WHITNEY-JULY 7-8: Miles Brubacher, Leader; Patricia Meixner, Asst. Leader
On Sat. July 7 (1956), 22 people knapsacked 3 miles cross-country up the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek to camp above Clyde Meadow. Six more joined the group later. In the afternoon 4 people climbed Thor Peak and 4 others climbed Mt. Russell. The rest loafed in camp.
Sun. morning 27 people made the ascent of Whitney via the Mountaineer's Route from East Face Lake. There was lots of snow in the couloir. All were on top by noon. Everyone enjoyed the glissading on the descent. The group hiked out as soon as they reached camp.
