LOVE this climb!
It''s not too far from the small town of Lone Pine and the Whitney Portal climb (you can do them both in a day if you''re up to it). The grade is extremely consistent most of the way up and it rarely gets above 10%. The road surface ain''t great but it is paved the whole way....just not super well maintained. Your fine on a road bike though. The views on the way up and down are spectacular. There''s a campsite at the top......otherwise there''s nothing in the way of amenities on the way up so bring plenty of water! 3 bottles would probably be enough to take you from Lone Pine to the top.
