Glorious views of the Soleduc Valley and Mt Olympus on a very strenuous one way traverse of ~17 miles and ~5000' gain.  We will setup a car shuttle at the poorly marked Aurora Creek trailhead before returning to the Storm King Ranger Station to begin our trip.  The trail has fallen into relatively poor conditions in recent years so I am listing this as a scramble.  Photos from past trips can be seen here.
