Ascent Trip Report

Found the PCT a couple hundred yards up the Wet Meadows Trail. Took the ridge up from a few hundred yards later to the southeast; continued on the left side of the ridge to cross the creek near the saddle and worked our way up the west side of the south ridge below the Gardarms until southwest of Raymond where we went up the Class 2 to the top. We went down the gully on the east side of Raymond to Raymond Lake, followed the Raymond Lake Trail north to pick up the PCT and take it all the way back to the Wet Meadows Trail
