Creamy Salmon?

The Creamy Salmon Wall got its name from a menu item that was served at the Gourmet Noodle Italian Restaurante which was located in Crested Butte, CO. I worked there for a short time and and gleaned some outstanding recipes, not to mention a weird name for a spectacular wall. Crank on and enjoy the routes with which good work was done.
