The 1 day Climb up Mount Whitney is a 12-20 hour hike that covers a total distance of 22 miles. Day permits are limited and a lottery is held each year by the forest service. The deadline to apply is in late february. The best time to climb Whitney is mid-July thru early September after the snow has melted off the trail. The biggest dangers facing hikers are lightning strikes on the summit, and falling asleep while driving home after a long hard climb. music credit goes to soundjay.com
