Has anyone done the regular trail up Whitney in the winter? I know my way around an axe and crampons (mountaineers route is shorter, easier & more dangerous) but my wife will be along and I don't mind spending a little more time on trail so that she is comfortable.
Would like to hear any trip reports (couldn't locate any) or any solid advice anyone may offer. Wisdom is greatly appreciated.
I am a solid hiker, climber, and have traveled In the winter many times from the Tetons to Yosemite. Wife is very fit and has no trouble with 14+hr trail days.
Thanks for any advice. It is appreciated
