Crag features

Mount Russell lies a mile north of its much more famous neighbor, Mount Whitney. Overshadowed by Mount Whitney's additional 400 feet which makes it the tallest in the contiguous US, Mount Russell receives only a fraction of the visitors. As one of the fifteen California 14ers, Mount Russell hardly suffers from neglect, however, and its excellent rock climbing and the relative difficulty of the easiest routes makes it a favorite among mountaineers.
