Plan is to ascend First Mother from Knapsack Pass, then traverse ridge line to Castle and descend to Mowich directly.....the classic route. A faint waytrail on or close to the ridge line is fun to follow on the traverse, with one airy step. Contact the leader if you wish to meet at Mowich Lake or other more southerly point.
