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?

Yes. Thank you. I saw the Summit Post source. I've also seen the West slope of Powell and it looks very steep. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice or experience.

We did it! Here's the track we took. It was an awesome experience. We did the full 15 mile loop in about 12 hours. We did find a way off of Mt Powell on the west side. There's a couloir on the North side the South summit of Powell. It was steep and loose but very doable. I will probably post a full report soon.
