Ascent Trip ReportBig gully route. Awesome scramble up from Castle Lake. Solid fun class 3/4 rock to climb on the way up which gave me no problems. Triggered a massive rock slide on the descent. Luckily we were alone on the route and there was nobody below. Steepness is the major danger factor here, but the route is "safe" if you are careful. WOW is the only way to describe the view. You can see everything!
That was my thoughts a decade ago. No way I'd climb that route now.
