Worked for us
Some pics of our route. We went up and over Castle Rock but our goal was the highpoint of the island and we found a nice route down. The pics here will show the route as if done from the trailhead parking area at the fence. Be aware that much of this route is on private property but unless there is cattle present, it shouldn't be a problem. Your call however, proceed at your own risk. I have no information on
who the landowners are and how you could get in contact with them. This information is simply a recap of the way we found an easier
way to deal with this peak.

I've added the waypoints (nad 27) on the bottom of the map since the topo is hard to read due to the USGS color scheme.
