Castle Craig

Castle Crag (Bitterroots)- attempt
Date: October 7, 2023
Leaders: Dell and Gail Meuchel
Participants: Dori Gilels, Candy Hartman, Tom Statz, Mark Blevins

It could not have been a more beautiful fall day for this Bitterroot excursion. The Western Larch were in full, almost iridescent gold. We should have started earlier as we reached Knaack lake and realized the summit would involve a trip out past light. We were satisfied reaching the beautiful upper lake and enjoying lunch. Spectacular sunshine graced the looming summit of Castle Crag. A significant blowdown on the approach trail also caused more of a delay than expected. Climbers included GMS members Mark Blevins, with Gail and Dell Meuchel. TRM participants included Dori Gilels, Candy Hartman and Tom Statz. A great group to end our fall climbing adventures.
