He day hiked from Whitney Portal almost to Trail Crest and back. Looks like it took him about 8 hours going up, and only 2.5 going down. I think he was able to glissade several slopes.

Hmmm...it doesn't look like a trail walk until well into June.

I guess I will have rent a pair of micro clampons to use with my trekking pole. wink
