Made the summit in about six hours via the trail. Total round trip in under 11 hours. We spent one night a 5000 feet at the Lone Pine Campground, did a day hike to Lone Pine Lake for acclimitization the next day and on the next morning made a 4:00 AM departure for the summit. Strenous 21 mile round trip hike.

I first climbed Whitney with my dad at age 16 in 1963. We camped part way up, and got an early start because we had to hike all the way up and out on summit day. I was sicker than a dog on the summit. And I was dead tired back at the car. For the '92 climb we started very early from Whitney Portal and did the round trip, getting back in mid-afternoon. I had started running two years before, so I felt great on the summit. Instead of being totally wasted back at the car, I jogged to the store to buy the "I hiked the big one in one day" T-shirt, or whatever it says. Running is by far the best thing I ever did for myself. I HIGHLY recommend it! One benefit is that I no longer feel sick at elevation.

This was my first time climbing the mountain. There was still quite abit of snow, but no crampons were needed. Had a great time. I plan on going again in 2001, if I am lucky enough to draw a permit.
