Lone Pine Peak
The North Ridge of Lone Pine Peak is a remarkable granite ridge climb. The incredible views of the Mt. Whitney area and the Owens Valley are not to be missed. This program is for experienced alpinists with excellent fitness and stamina as we climb in a 2-day format, either climbing the entire ridge in a single push or with an ultralight bivouac on the ridge, as conditions permit.
For those that are super fit, this is a rewarding big day outing with great moderate alpine rock climbing. There are also numerous other even longer and more adventurous routes on Lone Pine Peak. We offer most any of them on a custom private basis only.

Lone Pine Peak (12,944 ft.)
North Ridge – III, 5.7
Don’t let the easier rating fool you. This is a long climb with 5,000 feet of vertical gain and a 1/2 mile of enjoyable ridge climbing. The incredible views of the Mt. Whitney area and the Owens Valley are mind blowing. This adventurous climb can be done in 3 common styles: 1) 2 days with an ultralight bivouac on the ridge – in early season when there is still snow for melting, 2) 2 days with a bivouac at the start of the climb, blasting the entire climb and out in one big day, or 3) one giant car to car alpine push in a day. Any way you go for it, the North Ridge of Lone Pine Peak is a fantastic introduction to the world of light and fast. A great alpine training climb or climbing goal to aspire to.
