Has anyone bagged Mt. Whitney with-in the last couple weeks. I am curious to hear what the trail conditions are like. Does anyone have any input?

Last Saturday (April 20) I went up Mt. Whitney with three fellow coworkers as a day hike. We went up the mountaineers (North Fork of Lone Pine Creek) and we came down the main trail. We took and needed ice axes and crampons. Snow level was about 10,300' or so. There was no snow in the gully above the notch. Still some snow on the main trail traversing over to Trail Crest and the switchbacks are still snowed in. Snow conditions were surprisingly good. Even though it was 5:00 in the afternoon we didn't post hole very much. Just occasionally. I took a few pictures and posted them on my Flickr account.­
