 Wetterhorn   

We left the matterhorn creek 4x4 parking at about 6:15 AM and walked through the mostly dry woods, crossing snow patches here and there up until treeline.
After treeline the trail tended to go in and out of snowfields until we hit the ridge, which was completely dry.

After reaching the ridge line and being free of the snow it was the normal easy class 3 ledges to the top. And arrived there around 10:15

After leaving the summit, we made it a short ways down the ridge and enjoyed a glissade that lasted (with a little walking in between) down to below 12000 feet.

We were back at the car by about 12:30.
