wildcat ridge day hike

One for those already in top shape. Fast pace. Rating of 17. May be the toughest local hike on the club calendar. Compares to the Beat Out Hike, but much more exposure. Butler Fork to Mt. Raymond to Wildcat Ridge to Olympus to Pete's Rock. This is a long day including several hours of exposed scrambling along a cat walk with a good view into Neffs Canyon and Hughes Canyon at the same time. 3,160 ft gain to Mt. Raymond for a warm up, 6,000 ft cumulative descent, with numerous ups & downs along the way. (Maddeningly many false summits before Olympus.) Bring lots of food and water.
