This is going to blow you away. Incredible video. And the summit hut on Mt Whitney sticks out, you see just how small the summit is. Superb stuff, send kudos to the author, please.

Apparantly Whitney Stuff is not allowed here, hence I cannot reply.

That was so totally awesome! We always go to Whitney Portal on the way to Yosemite, but have never been up past Lone Pine Lake. Thanks a lot for sharing!

As a former private pilot (not gliders) I found the video a little freaky at certain moments because I lacked the benefit of feeling the air currents they were using. It blew my mind that they had sufficient speed and upcurrents to clear some of the obstacles. Warm air rising is a beautiful thing to have.
