The East Face of Mount Whitney

August 15


read Robert Underhill's full account of the climb here:

Mount Whitney by the East Face


(It seems that Glen was pretty occupied during the course of this day's climbing and only took a few shots on the approach and then on the summit.  Interesting that this series of negatives are badly alligatored; I don't know if this is due to their storage or the film type.)

This is the only shot of Glen's after they began the climb. This point became known as the "Tower Traverse".
