[pct-l] whitney permits

Not true.   If you climb Mt Whitney you need a permit.

What I have found though is that the permits are easier to get if you start
from somewhere other than Whitney Portal. We have had no trouble getting
permits for Mt Whitney when hiking the JMT or PCT. I have also heard the
same applies for other starting locations.

greetings folks:

Is it not true that:

If you are climbing Whitney from Whitney Portal you need the *lottery*
but if you are entering the Whitney Zone from the JMT side (and only exiting
whitney portal)
you only need a non-lottery "whitney zone" permit?

any info would be appreciated.
