The Mount Whitney Trail Tee's Story

At 14,495 feet Whitney is the high point of the lower forty-eight states and one of the most coveted summits in the country. 

This is a killer hike! - A must for the extreme day hiker. With some careful planning, some conditioning, and the right mental attitude this can be a successful day and an unforgettable experience. Mt. Whitney is a 22 miles round trip hike, has an elevation climb of over 6000 feet, and is one of the most famous extreme day hikes.


A 22-Mile Round-Trip Hike

Starting at Whitney Portal, an elevation of 8,360 feet, Mount Whitney Trail is the most popular route to the summit. This 22-mile round-trip hike is a killer, with a knee-crushing elevation gain of 6,100 feet. Considered extreme, well-trained & physically fit hikers can hike to the summit & return to Whitney Portal in one day. A hike like this is not without struggles, from altitude sickness & cold air to treacherous surface conditions. Any skilled hiker should put this on their must-hike list!

The ascent time for a day hike up Mt. Whitney is a fast pace of 5 hours, a moderate time of 7-8 hours, and a slow hike of 10 hours.  Going down is about 2-3 hours quicker than going up. Therefore, if you are a beginner and/or not in top physical shape it is easy to spend up to 18 hours on this "day hike." So if you want to return to Whitney Portal before dusk.

We love t-shirts, but have come to understand that not all t-shirts love us. Poor quality construction in seems and low quality cotton can leave you with a tee that's better suited as an oil rag. We don't just want our t-shirts to look awesome, but feel awesome when worn.

While there's no shortage of t-shirt shops around, we've committed to going our own way. It's that type of thinking that led us off-roading and in search of new iconic routes in the first place (much to our wive's delight). Read more...
