The toilets are long gone. Now they hand you the porta-poop-bags and pull long faces if you ask for more than one! WTF do we pay taxes for?

Your mom must be pretty buff to be considering 22 miles and 6000' up and down in one day!

I have many books about the area. I think my favorite is "Mount Whitney, Mountain Lore from the Whitney Store by Doug Thompson. It includes the best route beta I've read.


Doug runs the Whitney Portal Store and knows more about the Whitney Zone than anybody and he makes a great cheeseburger. He also has the biggest pancake I've ever eaten. The local guides hang out there and you get updated info from the store.


check his website:




Lots of permit info and how to climb it.
