Consider this motivation to organize your own Mount Whitney hike next year – Tyler Armstrong, a 7-year old boy from Yorba Linda, has summitted Mount Whitney in under 24 hours. Tyler and his dad left Whitney Portal around 2AM and returned just before 7PM, and now wants to try to climb all the world’s mountains.


While I don’t necessarily recommend doing Mount Whitney as a day-hike, I’ve got to congratulate Tyler on his incredible achievement. Also, from his KTLA interview, it seems like he’s going to be doing a LOT more hiking in the future – and that’s always a good thing!
