Comments
Comments: Interesting and challenging terrain. One slabby scramble (roughly 45 degree angle) just past Link junction. There were trees on the sides to grab. Castles area require some more vertical scrambles but all good foot and hand holds. Would only recommend in dry conditions. Also narrow and ridge-like in areas with a feeling of exposure. Should feel comfortable with heights. Castle Ravine to Link junction is a slow going scramble on sometimes loose talus. Would recommend going up rather than down.
