10m 42sLenght

Bus stop to summit is over 1800 meters (~5900 ft.), which is well over a vertical mile, and equivalent to climbing up Japan's highest skyscraper (the Landmark Tower in Yokohama) SIX times, or climbing up from the Colorado River to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I now need a new body. Video includes riding on the Shinkansen, the onset of a snowstorm, inside the mountain hut, sunrise, a 360-degree panorama from the summit, awesome mountain scenery, and a final commentary by the tour guide. :-) More details on this trip, including my Flickr pics, route map & elevation profile, are here: http://www.garyjwolff.com/mt-kasagatake.html
