Hi there,

Thank you so much for this fantastic resource. Am finding great info on here about training and acclimating.

Wanted to see what everyone's opinion was on using an overnight permit to day hike Whitney. I scored an overnight permit for mid-July, but am having second thoughts about camping at 12,000 feet--seems like a lot of folks have trouble sleeping due to wind and nausea/altitude adjustment.

Spoke with a ranger and they said you needed a separate day pass to day hike Whitney, but am wondering if they will escort you off the mountain if you summit and return on the day you'd be camping?

Thanks in advance for the advice...
