Maybe I'll try it S. to N. ( but via the Whitney mountaineers route so I don't have to deal w/ the impossible Whitney trail quota). What's the record S. to N. ?--it's tougher that direction, against the grain. My variation would diqualify me, though. I'd also hitch out to Mammoth for a brewski :-)> double disqualification! Off trail variations via the Roper High Sierra Route---triple disqualification. Well, a personal record, then.
So, perhaps I'll see you en route---a passing blur. I'll be wearing the Green Zip Pack.
