Due to a change to where we camped the night before we had less time than hoped for, so climbing both Gunsight Butte and Castle Peak just weren't going to happen today. Gunsight Butte looked ore like a canyoneering type of climb so we settled for Castle Peak. But then due to our approach from the south, the main summit of Castle Peak wasn't something we were prepared for so due to timing, we settled on climbing to the western ridge of Castle Peak.

But now that we've mapped out more of the Forest Roads and gathered a good lay of the land we'll be back to bag the summit of Castle Peak and possibly get most of the way up Gunsight Butte. Only problem is it due to so much driving on rough roads averaging less than 10 mph it will have to wait until we have two days in a row again. Either that or leave home by 4 am and return late in the evening. But that doesn't work too well if Tracey has to work the next morning. So it's either wait until we have two days, or I do it on my own. The temps were upper 70's to mid-80's, but the higher they climb higher the more likely I'll be going alone.

I posted 25 photos here on HAZ, but the full set of 47 (including the rest of our day of driving) is here:
