Great day in the mountains.  While we were driving in, it was raining pretty hard, so we flipped a coin - heads: Mt. Kidd, or tails: The Wedge.  I'm quite glad it landed heads.  After a sunshower for the first half hour it cleared up, and we enjoyed almost sublime stepkicking until the 2/3 mark where we transferred onto the rock.  Then on the descent, who can argue with 300m of soft scree, then 700m of glissading?  The snow was a little soft for a very fast glissade, but it was quite relaxing.
