Aterrific climb. It was a beautiful day and we reached the summit in 8 hours. We left Whitney Portal at 4:30 AM and reached the summit at 12:30PM. Our return took 6 hours. My suggestion to really enjoy your climb is to properly prepare yourself with good physical conditioning and proper acclimatization. Please e-mail me if you would like more detailed info. I don't know if it will help but I will gladly share what we did to prepare.
