Whipple Mountains


By: John Delmonte


Twenty-four enthusiastic Sierrans braved wintery blasts to take part in the Whipple Mountain trip. Camping in a dry wash, the group on Sunday, February 22, George Birthington's Washday, climbed the high point of the range (named Mount Janet by leader Delmonte) and had a most interesting trek through cholla cactus belts, dry waterfalls and the like. The summit afforded a fine view of the Colorado River and Lake Havasu, and was "crowded" with ten eager climbers.
