Whitney access in Mid-April

Postby deungsan » Fri Apr 02, 2010 3:11 pm

I'm hoping to attempt the Mountaineer's Route in about 10 days.

Anyone care to guess how close to the Portal a 2WD car will be able to get?

Thanks.

Now there is an avalanche cone across the road above the first big switchback. Check the Whitney Portal store bulletin board for when Inyo county gets around to digging it out.
