My group was able to get overnight permits for July 19. I'm optimistic that the trail will be open by then however our group leader and the only person who can pick up the permits wont be able to go on the hike with us. Would he still be able to pick up the permits for the rest of us without having to be on the trail with us? I dont remember having to present photo id's on the trail last time. Also, would we be able to give his extra permit to another friend of ours?

And there you have the reason to always specify an alternate leader when applying for a permit!!!

The leader could still pick up the permit. (but I can't imagine the leader would want to travel all that way just for that) You might be able to designate an alternate leader when you pick up the permit. Once you have the permit, another person could likely use the slot without any problems.

...although Inyo N.F. might hold fast to the "permits are non-transferable" rule, and just say no. You should call the Wilderness Permit number and see what they say: 760-873-2483
