I'm planning a trip to Red Castle area. My goal is to climb both Wilson Peak and Mt Powell. I would like to make a base camp somewhere near Lower Red Castle Lake. My plan is to summit Wilson, take the ridge over to Mt Powell. Traverse the 3 peaks of Powell and then drop down into Red Castle again. I'm wondering how difficult it is to climb down the west slope of Powell. Is there a safe way down? Is there a good source for detailed beta for this?
