Waypoint 1
Circle All Peak
 Elevation: 8707  Feature: Peak
Notes: It is not really a peak, Circle All Peak is really just a highpoint on a ridgeline leading up to Gobblers Knob. You can see quite a bit of Big Cottonwood Canyon from there though.
Waypoint 2
Baker Pass
 Elevation: 9340  Feature: Saddle
Notes: Bakers Pass is the saddle between Gobblers Knob and Mount Raymond. From here, you can go to one or both peaks. Gobblers Knob is an easy walk-up peak, Mt Raymond is a bit more challenging, but has awesome views.

Mount Raymond
 Elevation: 10241  Feature: Peak
Notes: Mt Raymond can easily be climbed in tandem with its neighbor to the east, Gobblers Knob. From its summit there are awesome views of rugged geology everywhere. The view to the south, across Big Cottonwood is not too bad either.
