Response to acclimation


Everything you guys are saying is dead on. The biggest issue is getting to Lone Pine the day before to physically obtain the permit. Not much way around that. I'm not too terribly concerned with the acclimitization on Whitney although I do move slow about 12.5K or so. I use Diamox which helps and the time on Mauna Kea and possibly Mauna Loa the day before will benefit me.

I guess I just gotta sit on my hands at this point and wait to see if and what days I get on the permit. If the permit doesn't happen, I'll have to explore other options for Whitney. Thanks again guys.
