I was supposed to meet up with the Colorado Mountain Club on this one. Somehow missed them and started solo up Casco. Later crossed paths with them on top of Frasco Peak, but continued on to French Mtn.

10/27/07 - Roach's standard circuit for climbing French, Frasco & Casco. Traversed the ridge from French. A nice fall solo hike.

1/19/14 - Hiked the East Ridge from Echo Canyon. A wind scoured line provided an avy safe path to the Bull Hill saddle. I'm sure this is not always the case in winter.

We climbed Casco from North Lake Creek trailhead. This hike introduced us to this interesting group of mountains just west of Mt Elbert.

Traverse the big 3, French, Frasco, and Casco. Snow on the North ridge of Casco made it interesting, a little class 3/4 mixed climbing right near the ridge made for some fun. Snow was pure sugar, and didn't hold. A fun and beautiful day out.

Completed the French/Frasco/Casco traverse here. N Ridge had substantial amount of unconsolidated snow on it, increasing the difficulty of the final scramble to Casco's summit. Climbed some interesting, snow-filled 4th class chimneys.

started at Halfmoon 2wd TH and combined Casco with French, Frasco BM, 13660, & Lackawanna via a car shuttle. Nice scrambling opportunities below the summit on the north ridge.

Climbed Casco after making the out and back to French. The climbing on Casco was the best of the bunch with some optional fun scrambling on very solid rock near the summit.

This is a beautiful peak and the ridge from Frasco to here is what I consider to be the definition of Class 2+. A beautiful autumn day with the willows turned into a sea of gold.
