Whitney Russel Col, scares me every time

Recommended Posts

Steve Fosset's Minaret Lake is now a common destination for me.  I got familiar a little at a time and recently did a shoot there at 35kts.

Whitney Russel Col pictured in the panorama below is a different story.  I have been all thru this area a number of times now but I have never tansitioned the Col down below the summits of Whitney and Russell.

Maybe next trip?

35 knots?  Wow... I’m sure you are well experienced in your aircraft.  The thought of 35 knots over mountainous terrain just gives me the Heebie-Jeebies!

Gorgeous photo!  In terms of flying the Col... I’m the wrong person to ask since I tend to be risk adverse in any craft that moves in 3 directions.
