On Friday, June 28, 2013 I along with my two friends Colin and David made the 22 mile, nearly 6,200 ft of gain roundtrip to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,505 ft) from the Whitney Portal (8,360 ft). It took us a little over 4:30 to summit, paused about an hour as we waited for Colin to summit and just a little under 8 hours roundtrip. So glad I got to experience this and cross this one off the bucket list. A truly epic day.
