Wedge Mountain.  The little summit with million dollar views.  Discussing vertical would belie just how relaxing and enjoyable this brief tour was.

I love that tour, winter or spring, great views. How far did you have to walk on dirt from the end of the road?

It's a great winter tour too.  I was able to start skinning at the last flat area before the snow slope leading to the crest.

Scott, no protractor needed for this trip.  I was a little shocked and disappointed Jake didn't use the protractor to check the slope angle of Eric and Dan's Black Peak descent.  That would have been good information to confirm.
