Dateline: Bishop, CA (20180725)
Although not a part of the official Pacific Crest Trail, the side hike to the top of Mount Whitney, at 14,505′ the highest point in the contiguous United States, most PCT hikers attempt to summit the mountain. For many reasons, many do not make it. Weather, physical conditions, and time constraints top the list for reasons for PCT hikers to fail to reach the top. To see if Rob made it, watch the video.
