Ascent Trip Report

Castle Valley Road to Castle pass, then up the west ridge to the summit. Climbed the class 3 route on the east side of the east turret (true summit). Climbing up was easy, climbing down more nervous, but made it without incidents. We planned to continue to Basin Peak after Castle, but abandoned this idea due to very strong wind.
