Microspikes on Whitney or Kaweah Gap

Postby rscofield » Mon Jun 27, 2016 11:15 am

I looked elsewhere and could not find super current info so please forgive if this is redundant. Will be heading out this Wednesday and wondering if I should bring my microspikes (I’m certainly not thinking I need my ice axe!). Route is Cottonwood Pass up west side to Whitney then High Sierra Trail to Crescent Meadow. As warm as it has been, I suspect not but thought I’d ask the question. Thanks in advance! Russell

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
