Lucky for me, I received an invite from two recent scrambling acquaintances in the form of an email from Cornelius Rott and Trevor Boyce, inviting me for a jaunt up the relatively obscure front range "Castle Rock" peak in the front ranges of the Ghost Wilderness Area just east of Banff National Park.
