Three hikers started from Big Springs in South Fork and hiked over Cascade Mountain when they got ledged out on the west face. Team members responded on motorcycle and foot and a rescuer reached the hikers around midnight. Two were in good condition and one felt weak due to minor illness. Due to darkness and the steep scree terrain, team members bivouced on the mountain and brought them safely across the cliffs and down the mountain in the morning.
