We will likely meet early in the morning at the PCT trailhead off of Hwy 20.  Its a long drive from Seattle, so best to bivy in the area the night before.

This is a lesser climbed ridge on Cutthroat, so I am looking for folks with some experience, therefore leaders permission is required.    Feel free to contact me if you want to join the climb though, or if you have any questions,  thanks!
