This was our acclimation hike for Mt. Whitney, June 3-4 2014. We also used this hike as an opportunity to practice our glissading and self-arresting skills. Based on trip reports and the route I mapped out, the hike should have been around 7 miles roundtrip. Due to the extra hiking we did to find a spot to glissade, as well as getting a bit off track, our hike was 10+ miles. We spent close to 2 hrs in the hills south of Summit Lake.
