Hiking Mt. Whitney

During the summer of 2022, I met a hiking partner who’s just as crazy as me and he had a permit to hike Mt. Whitney in a single day.

Liam and I trained for Whitney with lots of amazing hikes all across California including Lassen Peak, Desolation Wilderness, and the infamous cone peak.

On the day of our hike, we woke up at 1 am, started hiking around 2 am, and didn’t make it back down until about 7 pm. It was the longest day hike I’d done (roughly 26 miles) and it was Liam’s first fourteener.

Thankfully, everything went well and we successfully made the summit!
