day hike wildcat ridge

MOUNTAINEERING / SCRAMBLE / DAY HIKE: WILDCAT RIDGE: Walt Haas (534-1262 or haas@xmission.com) presents the annual scramble from Mt Olympus to Mt Raymond. This is it, my hardies. One of the toughest, longest, scramblyest, rattlesnakeyest hikes in the Wasatch. And people come back year after year. This ridge run is done only once each year, on the longest weekend of the year to take advantage of every second of daylight. At dawn you begin hiking from the Mount Olympus trailhead, summit Olympus, scramble the killer ridge east to Triangle Peak, then continue to the summit of Mt. Raymond and down Porter Fork. You will need to carry lots of water and enough food to go hard all day. The leader guarantees that you will encounter at least one rattlesnake, and get to dangle from many rocks without a belay. An early start and car shuttle are required. Call or email Walt to register. If you haven't done Wildcat Ridge before, be prepared to tell Walt what you do to stay in shape, and how well you handle exposed rock scrambling and rattlesnake encounters.
