Wake up, eat some Ramen and weigh our packs. 50lbs? Okay, let's go; we pack in to Iceberg Lake.
7am start; hike to Mount Russel via the Whitney/Russell Col. Spot the route entirely in the shade. Lounge around for a bit and decide to start the route at 11am. Lead through several 5.9 crux moves on clean amazing granite. I'm back to camp just before dark.
Simul Climb east buttress of Whitney on route 3hr 10 minute. 5.5 hr roudtrip from iceberg lake.
