With a staggering elevation of 14,497 feet, Mt. Whitney
is the highest peak in the contiguous United States.
Dominating the Sierra Nevada Range, its steep slopes rise sharply out of Owens Valley on the eastern edge of the Sequoia National Park, gaining elevation at a dizzying rate until they culminate in the mountain's chiseled summit. Mt. Whitney offers a variety of hiking and climbing opportunities, from day trips to longer, more strenuous ascents. The mountain's East Face route, first climbed in 1931, is a classic High Sierra easy route. The northeast face and the "needles" to the south of the main summit contain a series of routes that are considerably more challenging.
This distinctive coin keychain salutes the courage of all those who have pushed up Mt. Whitney's steep slopes. The obverse features a rendering of the mountain and includes its elevation. The reverse depicts a climber standing triumphantly atop Mt. Whitney's summit.
Minted in a brass alloy and finished in antique bronze, this key chain comes packaged with a detailed certificate of authenticity that describes Mt. Whitney in full detail.
