what route are you going? id really recommend the Mountaineer's Route as it is less crowded and a little more challenging (though not too technical). The chute just below the summit is very similar to the canaleta on Aconcagua if it is not filled with snow.mt. whitney is a great mountain to train on because of it's altitude (i went there a lot before I did Denali). I hope you have a great trip,
