Ascent Trip Report

Fun trip up the Castle! We parked at the Narada Falls trailhead, but there was no snow on the steep slope to the upper road so we took the trail. The road was snow free up to Snow Lake, where we put on snowshoes. We chose a low class 5 route up to the summit block, then set up a handline to the true summit, as it was partially snow covered and difficult to tell what below us was rock and what was air.
