Ascent Trip Report

Ideal trip: Started with an ascent of the Black Tusk and the surrounding "Knobs" (ended up climbing one of the neighboring chimneys to the main route on Tusk - loose and dangerous near top and not recommended); camped on Panorama Ridge; ascended Castle Towers from there in a day (epic long day of 16+ hours), then slept on Panorama Ridge and departed the next day
