Eisenhower Tower 5.5, Castle Mountain

This past weekend we got out to Castle Mountain located between Banff and Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. A 4 hour hike/sramble leads to the Castle Mountain Hut high on the goat plateau. This was my first trip to this hut and was soo impressed! The hut it self is nothing more than a small metal box with a couple beds but the position and views are unbeatable!! Definitely worth heading up there even just for a night.

Next day we leisurely headed across the plateau to the start of Eisenhower Tower.
