The PCT  itself between the 2 intersections with Highway 79 is 1.8 miles

PS: Enjoy Whitney, and remember to pack out  what you pack in. Therefore, no 
pirate flags planted on the  top!
That is a good point.  I think  I will take some pirate stuff on this 
expedition.  I might also paint the  shelter roof at the top with a big skull & cross 
bones.  Kind of a  "Switchback was here." thing. Thanks for the idea.
Yes, 1.8 miles seems like a good stretch of the legs, especially when you  
are the first to ever do it.  I like to do some serious hiking on my PCT  
vacations to make me feel productive.  I like to feel I  am knocking down some 
serious mileage on my now 36 year (started in 1970)  section hike of the trail.
I notice some hikers on this List  are doing 30+ miles per day on their 
hikes.  That is about a year's PCT  average for me.
Thanks again, Switchback the Trail  Pirate
