'Zactly. A local Sierra Club hike leader in the past led annual midnight hikes: watch the sunrise, then exit. He related how the park people phoned him and reminded him there was no camping. He insisted they weren't camping. If you're up there without bedding or a tent, you're not camping.
What if you're up there, no food, no stove, no tent, you have a wilderness permit, your main camp is down by the junction, but you're inside a sleeping bag so you don't freeze to death, and sleeping next to a camera that's taking an 8 hour time-lapse of the milky way?
