    We spend our first night at the campground at the end of the road. This gives you time to adjust to the 10,000 foot elevation. We estimate that 80% of our unsuccessful attempts fail due to problems with altitude, (and the balance due to weather) and spending a night here before the start of the hiking dramatically improves your chances of attaining the summit of Mt. Whitney.
