60 mile hike to top Mt. Whitney
Frank Hansen, a former SAS employee and now a sales rep for More & Malloy...
"I'm involved with the Boy Scouts and every year we take a group of about 400 boys and leaders on a backpacking or mountaineering trip. We have climbed Langley, Whitney, Hooper, Price, Dogtooth Peak and Graveyard Peak. This year we once again set our eyes on MT Whitney, the high mountain in the continental US. Some of this trips have been more technical and not all have gone exactly as planned. This year was once again a success, nobody died. It is next to impossible to get the permits required for such a trip and it means we had to approach Mt Whitney from the south. Round trip of about 60 miles. The worst part is the elevation, traveling over a couple passes that climb to 12000ft, only to drop down to just over 9000. Then climb again up to the 14495ft peak. Then its back down and out the way you came in. "
