Just learned about the permits released for hikers no longer interested in doing Mount Whitney recently. Would probably be interested in summitting some time later in August. Would anyone here be interested in taking me in or joining me on the hike? I'm a male in my early twenties living in the San Gabriel Valley, and just completed the SoCal Six Pack of peaks challenge. In pretty good fitness (training for a marathon), and would want to summit at a moderate pace.

Would be on the lookout the next few weeks for permits as they're released.
