Critique my plan

by ashbal » Mon Apr 22, 2024 7:54 pm

I got permit for Mt Whitney end of May. Based on current conditions ... 6&actid=51, it looks like after the first 2 miles, it is completely snow. Hopefully by end of May , conditions change a bit and snow melts so i can walk as much higher as possible towards summit. I would love to hike from trailhead until a point there is lot of snow and then return back (i will carry crampons, axe etc just case). Since i plan to come all the way from Bay area, i plan to stay in lone pine, do the hike to Mt whitney , return back if there is lot of snow and then head to Mt. Langley same day. I plan to hike Mt.Langley as much as possible but return back to trail head before sunset.
Is there a better plan that you recommend ? My intent is to do as much hiking as possible and not aiming to reach summit.
