Forbidden East Direct Ridge
Wussed out on drive and parked about 1-1/4 miles from trailhead.
Probably could have followed the actual trail a little climber's right on the approach to the direct start.
Choss nozzle is too kind a description for the rock on the the Castle. Pic from top of Castle looking back at North side of Adams summit. I traversed from Pikers Peak but a direct line from summit seems OK.
Dusk patrol with the sickest sunset!
Good snow on the north side.
One extra bonus lap. Phone died midway so not all tracked.
On approach, we left Mtneers Cr Rd too early, stay on it until there is a small clearing on left (which is our down track). First 1,000 feet after crossing the creek is a bushwack of a skin...
