TBD - I propose Lynnwood P&R in late afternoon.

I want to do this as a one-day trip instead of the usual two. The camp sites are fantastic, but I really dislike playing the permit game.

One day means two things - (1) we need to move fairly fast on trail and (2) we need to simulclimb much, or all of the route. In any case, it'll be a long day. We'll probably car-camp the night before, start well before dawn, and finish after sunset.

If you have not climbed with me before, please tell me a bit about yourself. I want to make sure our expectations about both conditioning and climbing skills are aligned.
