Ascent Trip Report

Approached via Monument 78 trail. Trail is very overgrown and washed out for about a mile, lots of standing water on trail. From border, bushwhack to south slope was miserable- tons of slide alder, devils club, fallen trees. DO NOT traverse high on the west side of Castle Creek you will regret it. From the basin below the south slope, the ascent was an easy brush-free scramble. Getting there is the hard part ;)
