SE Couloir

"First trip into the High Sierra this year. Wonderful views and a beautiful hike. So much better than the Whitney Main trail. The views from the summit are well worth obtaining, Whitney looks so dominating." - Irrationalist, May 2, 2015
"Try to take the SE couloir but chose the wrong one and wound up getting trapped by a chokestone. Was able to climb around a rib to get one couloir over which brought me to the plateau. I don't think there is a finer view of Mt. Whitney from any summit!" - Christopher, Nov 17, 2013
