TBD.  It'll be early.  Probably meet at the Mercer Island P&R.

This climb has been cancelled because (1) it's dumping snow all week, and avy concerns are likely to be high on Saturday, (2) it's dumping snow all week, so this climb is more likely to be a snow-wallow than Intermediate Ice, and (3) the weather forecast for Saturday is crappy, predicting up to 30mph winds, which we're not going to climb in.
