Permits

You now need a permit for even a day trip on Mountaineer's Route/N fork of Lone Pine. I called the InterAgency office the day before my trip and they left it in a lockbox for me to pick up that night.

I think the final gully to the summit is 4th class. At the beginning of it if you fell you'd take the big ride. To me that is 4th class.

Yep!

While a permit is indeed now required, there is not a quota for day hikers. The folks in the Bishop office, postulated, to my girlfriend and I, that issuing the permits without a quota was being used to determine a quota at some point in the future.

The Aspen are actually Alder

Small correction: under the Approach section you actually tunnel through dense Alder - I believe Green Alder. 'Tunnelling' is a great description though.
