If you are climbing in the summer and if you want a good night's sleep before going up, it may be better to spend the night at the Whitney Portal Campground. We stayed in Lone Pine, but it was so hot that even with the air conditioner on, we could not get much sleep! The round trip from the parking lot took 12 hrs. 40 minutes. A good hike, but a bit too long for one day.
