Visit http://www.heywhatsthat.com/ and navigate the map to the spot that you desire. Click on the “new panorama” button and fill in some blanks. Wait for a couple of minutes and you will get a full-blown 360 degree pano of surrounding peaks. Click on the red triangle and learn more about the peak. The map belows gives a birds-eye view and distance from you to the summit.
