Hey Whitney Zone!

My wife and I are still looking for possible experienced Whitney partners to either start early with at the trail head Friday morning, or meet at trail camp Friday evening and make the summit hike together early Saturday.

Any takers? smile

Robert, of the hundreds of people who visit Mt Whitney every week, only a few participate here. So finding someone to hike with here is unusual. However, once you are on the trail, you will find quite a few others heading up the same as you, so if you talk to people, you can probably find others who might hang together.

When you are camped at Trail Camp, you should take the time and talk to others there, and try to find others who want to leave about the same time in the morning. It is a big unknown, though, whether the others will hike at your same speed. You certainly won't be alone on the mountain, and so connecting with others should be pretty easy.

Have fun!!!

Steve,

Thanks for the note. I suppose I assumed that plenty read here. It's by far the best information i have seen about the mountain. I appreciate everyone's reports leading up to the trip.

Just left Whitney today, and a lot of backpackers are headed up for the weekend. You should be able to find somebody.
