PCT 22' Strava journal - Day 47

Mount Whitney (Mile 766)

A first draft:


One of the most memorable days on trail ! We reach Mt. Whitney basecamp at 7am and start climbing. On our way up we cross all the sunrise hikers coming down. The climb is hard but I feel good and cope with the altitude better than expected. So happy to make it to the summit. Bleeder takes out his summit beer and is kind enough to share! We take our time enjoying the views from under our sleeping bags before eventually heading down again. I meet Stef and Lien from Belgium. Tired but satisfied we set up our tents at the basecamp.
