Let's meet at the Jim Whitaker trailhead at 5:45 p.m., boots on the trail at 6 sharp. See directions under Getting There. Expect heavy traffic at this hour. 

Short distance and elevation, so let's pack on some weight. On the way down, we'll plan to do some rappel practice, so bring your rock gear. And headlamps. Email to come.
