Overview

 

Want to climb the tallest mountain in the lower 48 States of the United States? Struggling to get a permit for the standard hiking route and want to avoid the crowds? Wanting to take your beginner mountaineering skills to the next level?  

Look no further and climb Mt. Whitney in the winter with expert local guides via the Mountaineers route on the east side of the peak, starting from Lone Pine.  

After booking your climb, you will be connected with your vetted guide.  

Due to seasonality and subsequent possible road closures, weather windows, etc. this climb is scheduled for 5 days, although you may finish sooner. The itinerary below is an example itinerary that will be modified to suit conditions based on your guide’s judgement. Weather conditions, avalanche danger and group ability will be assessed everyday by your guides to make the safest informed decisions.  

For group bookings for more than 6 people, please reach out to us at team@adventuretripr.com or come chat with us on WhatsApp. Also, the cancellation policy on this trip varies from our general cancellation policy. Please refer to the FAQs below for the details.

Itinerary

Day 1: Meet up with the guides, gear check and start hiking

You’ll meet with your guides and the rest of your group at the Whitney Portal Hostel near the center of Lone Pine at 7:30 am. The hostel is on the east side of Highway 395 just south of the only traffic light in town. Come having already had a hearty breakfast and be ready to go!  

After introductions your guides will do a pack check and distribute group gear among your group, then carpool to the road closure, about 20 minutes out of town.  

Exactly where you start hiking depends upon the road closure. The closure may be well below the regular parking at Whitney Portal. In fact, it might just take a day to get to the parking area! Your guides will also have to consider the difficulty of retrieving vehicles should the weather change for the worse.  

Depending on conditions, you will mostly likely set up your first camp at the Whitney Portal.
