Trip: Whitehorse Mountain - Standard

Date: 1/20/2014

Trip Report:
On Monday the 20th Adam Walker, Josh Lewis and I climbed Whitehorse Mountain via the standard route. We camped at the trailhead and started the hike at 3am, but due to some slowdowns with a couple members of the team bailing we did not make the summit until 12:45.
Route finding was not all that difficult, the trick to the traverse past Lone Tree Pass seems to be to go low and stay low, the correct gully is obvious once you are below it. The summit block itself was fairly simple, 60 degree snow that took bucket steps very well followed by a short, steeper section to the crest. I belayed Adam and Josh up on a picket and then they rappelled, leaving me to clean the anchor and down-climb.
All in all it was a great day on a peak Iíve been wanting to get up for a long time.



Additional photos can be found here.

Gear Notes:
Snow conditions were phenomenal, with excellent cramponing for the vast majority of the route, we carried snowshoes but did not need them. Also not needed were the second tool, the ice screws, and the small rock rack that I carried.

and... uh ... always dangerous, bragging about doing stuff, in super time. Wish i woulda had some big talker (found out had no experience) 'bragger' bail on us,way early, in early 90,s in very similar conditions, on n face big 4. never 'believed' a chest thumper again, after that.
