Description

I give this line a difficult rating rather than moderate because it is so remote.

A roughly 12 mile sled approach is required to the wilderness boundary.

From there, you must ascend the ridge to the west of Castle before getting views of the western side of the magical mountain.

The South Face is the classic however this is a land filled with endless Couloir possibilities.
