I'd take my hammock, though I haven't done all the JMT yet. Did the
High Sierra Trail to Whitney, both ways, and hammock was great all the
way. Just camp at Crabtree Meadow, near the back country ranger
station. No place to hang past that.
I'll be doing the JMT from Tuolumne to Kearsarge Pass (Independence)
later this summer, the section I haven't done. I'm definitely taking
hammock only. Might have to camp a little lower a few nights to catch
trees, or use my wire rope slings to hang off rocks above treeline.
Have a great hike. The Sierra is the best. Todd in CC.
