      Harrison's map is correct.

      The mistake that people make is that they think they go to Trail Crest
      on their way to Whitney from Guitar Lake. The 2.5 miles x 2 = 5 miles.

      If you look closely at the map you will see the switchbacks end below
      Trail Creat 0.6 miles below. From Guitar Lake you do not hit Trail
      Crest until your desent from Whitney to the Portal.
