    Going down the mountaineers route is actually a little more difficult because of the down climbing and by the time you reach the large boulder fields your legs are so tired much easier for injury to ankle or slipping and falling and getting injured. So I hope that gives you more insight about the hike. Are you planning on doing it at some point.

    Some of the climbing is class 3 with definite exposure so must be comfortable in doing that kind of climbing and the large boulders pretty good balance and strong ankles so you don't twist your ankles Jumping from one boulder to the other. The views heading up that route are more scenic also than the traditional route. On the way down I went the road route and it took forever and it was quite tedious and tiring with all the switchbacks.

    Hi Kelly,

    I see your hometown is LA county I lived in the LA Area before I moved up here about 8 years ago. Anyway Mt. Whitney is a great hike, but as I mentioned to Michael definitely better doing it the mountaineers route, at lest heading up, as oppose to the walk up route of a long and boring road with many switchbacks. The hard part of the mountaineers route are the sections of scrambling, very large boulder hopping, and steeper rate of ascent as oppose to the traditional route.

    Kelly, about to go on a road trip with my daughter so will be out of communication for a bit. I will definitely ask about the transfer when we get back. Maybe an answer by next week. I am not forgetting...

    Hi Kelly, how are you? I'm glad to see that you've joined the group, and I'm sure you'll find that we all have problems on what we should write about sometimes!

    Good morning Kelly and welcome to the group. Looks like we have another new member from West Seattle too. Maybe you guys can connect and carpool. Looking forward to meeting you on the slopes. :)

    Welcome to Kirtan Chadasha....I look forward to meeting you! Rest assured, I have also been to traditional Kirtan (in Bali) and what you will experience at our Kirtan (with translations) are in line with a monotheistic tone (as it is being held in a synagogue). We will be using some of the works of Yofiyah and Tziona Achishena as our music. All the translations will be available and there will be no worries about singing to a multiplicity of gods.
