This hike is planned in combination with Langley. You are welcome to do one or other or both.
20th, Langley: 22 +- miles, 4,000" + EG
21st, Mallory: 13.5 +- miles, 6,000' + EG.
Both hikes are advanced hikes. Mallory will involve class 3 scrambling but if you are a strong hiker with no fears of heights, scrambling will not be an issue.
For Langley; we will arrive on Friday and camp at the Cottonwood Lake. We will start the hike Saturday Morning and finish it before 4 PM. We will then head to Lone Pine, have dinner there before going to Whitney Portal to start the Mallory on Sunday. Permit or camping fees will be split.
