I think Mike has it - but the benchmark altitude is closer to what North Palisade is.

We await more pictures! :-)

That's my guess. Hard to tell from the picture, I've only seen White Mountain Peak while above it or even with the peak in a hang glider. Nice work avejoe! =D>

Yep, White Mtn. on August 7. It was my 49th b-day. I plan on doing Whitney on August 7, 2012.

I didn't take many pictures cause it was one hard climb. 10.5 miles all above 12,500. I spent the 4 days prior riding at 7,000 plus ft. That and drinking a lot of water on the climb got me through it without any major issues. Just a lot of heaving breathing. Others were not so lucky. Lots of folks were really suffering.
