Hiking to Cardiff Pass

Cardiff Pass

 Elevation: 10020  Feature: Saddle
Notes: Cardiff Pass is probably one of the easiest locations to get to on the jagged Cottonwood Ridge. The rest of the range requires more skill and nerves. See the Snowbird/Alta ski resorts to the south and Mill D (Cardiff) Canyon to the north.
