Andrew Lewicky from www.sierradescents.com and Eileen Bistrisky from Vancouver joined us for another memorable climb of the East Face of Mt. Whitney. In addition to Kurt’s photos Andy wore a helmet cam for the climb. Some of the video shot includes a great sequence on the Fresh Air Traverse, one of the funnest and most classic alpine climbing pitches in the country!
