Stories, information and comments from Whitney Portal climbers
Story by Carl from St Peter Port, United Kingdom, submitted on 31/05/2016
This climb is brutal! The lower part and the upper part are not too terrible, but there is a very difficult stretch of about 3 miles/5k in the middle that averages about 10%. In contrast, Onion Valley is a more steady gradient. There is good scenery on the way up and at the top. This one has a snack bar at the top. They are working on this road in Summer 2016 on Monday to Thursday - it''s best to avoid these days. The road gets quite a bit of traffic and there can be a big temperature difference between the bottom and top.

Story by D. L. from Berkeley, CA, United States, submitted on 07/11/2012
Very difficult climb, starts mellow in the desert but picks it up after 3+ miles. The last 5mi averages 9%+ without ANY rest. Beautiful views from the top. I thought it was tougher than Onion Valley, but may be I did it after Horseshoe Meadows.
