First time doing overnight at Whitney in two weeks and was planning on camping at trail camp. Wondering if the ground is soft enough to use stakes (was hoping to leave them in my car to avoid extra weight but might take them anyways) or does most everyone just tie guy lines to rocks (e.g. via the big rock little rock staking method)?
Loc: Playa del Rey, CA
I stayed a night at trail camp around this time last year and was not able to get stakes into the ground (used a large rock to try and hammer). That may be unique to the spot I pitched up in, but I'd bring some extra line to tie up if you have it.
