Given the elevation of the highest peaks in Vermont, I'm sure the elevation differential has to be far greater for the North Cascades passes if you consider them as one pass. You lose some elevation between the two, but they're not very far apart.
Thanks, that's what I was thinking having looked at the profiles. I'll check over on a couple of the other forums for opinions too.
