From the south with "Castle Rock" Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2013
This is what you get for sleeping in until 8 or 9, and taking until 11 to finish breakfast. Bunch of lazy sacks of cat crap... ;) Anyhoo, enjoyed a nice off-trail day on these peaks. Kiefer and I attempted a few lines on Window Rock, but apparently failed to find the alleged "5.0" route, so we bailed.
Just a quick, bushwhack up this ranked point. Went over and scrambled up "Castle Rock" and checked out "Window Rock" as well. Hell if I can find a 5.0 route up "Window". More like mid 5th...minimum.
After hiking up Steep Mountain, we had some time and energy so we hiked up Castle Mountain. No real trail, but the route is pretty obvious and not very difficult. Nice views from the top of the Mummy Range and Estes Park.
