    Great trip report. I’ve done Whitney both ways and actually prefer doing it in 1 day. You are typically only adding 5-6 miles to the mileage from your 2nd day and as a result can do it with only day packs. I’m taking a group up this summer, some have summited before others have not. I am going to send this link to them. Thanks again!

    I agree, great video.

    I’ve never climbed Whitney before but I’m organizing a group to go in July (hopefully, if Lottery goes well).

    Having not much summiting experience, would this 2 night version of the Whitney climb be do-able in a single weekend?

    You did a great job on the video! I’ve also done both a one-day and two-day and prefer the one-day. I have a permit for late August. Some of my fellow (San Diego) hikers have never attempted Whitney and this will be a great preview. Thanks again for sharing!

    @Mark: Yes, it’s definitely doable in a weekend. Make your overnite at Trail Crest. It gets you most of the way up there.

    Great video and website. We’re doing Whitney (3 day) for the first time at the end of September. I will be showing this video at our planning meeting.
    Thanks again.
