Summited with James S. Burton and Jeff Kofurd. Round trip hiking time from the Whitney Portal trailhead was 8:40. We thought we were going fast until a gal past us with legs that wouldn't quit. A great hike with great alpine scenary. It was a little too crowded over Labor Day weekend. We summited Whitney drove to Death Valley (highest and lowest point in the lower 48) and drove back to Utah, all in one day.
