Overview

Oakland Rotary’s High Adventure Committee has obtained a permit to hike to the summit of Mt. Whitney on Friday October 9th.  It is a one-day permit that requires that we complete the hike in the permitted area within 24-Hours (midnight to midnight).  

Mt. Whitney is located in California’s Eastern Sierras , about 100 miles (driving) South of Mammoth Lakes and just West of the town of Lone Pine.  From Oakland, it is approximately a 6-7 hour drive.  The permit is for 10people.  Mark Rosen and Tom Limon will co-lead the hike. 

It is imperative that all participants of this "climb" do adequate training and be comfortable hiking in snow.

If weather conditions do not look favorable 4 days prior to October 9th an alternative location will be designated. A possible alternative will be in Yosemite.
