Thanks for the good report, derryg! With the AMS trouble, can you tell us what your schedule was like:
When did you first arrive at significant altitude (example to Whitney Portal)?
When did you start hiking?
How long did it take to get to Trail Camp?
Just for others' reference, people have varying levels of AMS if they don't acclimate. Some are ok (~20%), some have mild symptoms (headache, can't eat) (~50%), and some really suffer (~30%). Two things help: #1, Best is acclimatization, such as sleeping TWO nights at Whitney Portal, or better at Horseshoe Meadows. And #2, taking a small dose of Diamox twice a day before and during the hike. I personally do both.
