Conquering A Granite Goliath: A 5-Minute Film of Mount Whitney That’ll Take Your Breath Away

“On June 2nd, 2018, four friends, Jason Forman, Mike Goubeaux, Brent Kiser, and I drove up to the Whitney Portal and began to prepare to summit Mt. Whitney two days later. What I ended up finding was so much more than just the tallest summit in the contiguous United States. The trail from Whitney Portal to the summit was full of serene alpine lakes, varied wildflowers, unique trees and interesting wildlife. I gained more than just another mountain summit, I gained 3 lifelong friendships and numerous lasting memories.” – Director, Christopher R. Abbey
