I still have a few spaces open on my team’s guided climb of the highest peak in the Lower 48, Mount Whitney in California’s High Sierra. Three readers of The Big Outside have signed up to join my 15-year-old son, Nate, and me for a four-day ascent of the Mountaineers Route on Mount Whitney, April 15-18. We’re doing it to raise money for Big City Mountaineers, an outstanding organization that introduces urban kids to the outdoors through backpacking and other adventure-based programs.
But the deadline is fast approaching to register for my climbing team and join me on a guided climb of California’s Mount Whitney.
