No traction required for these two; there are some large snowfields but enough rock showing through that it's easy to find a dry route up the bowls. The ridge itself is totally clear of snow. Descent from the saddle is way too dry; turned around and went back over Castle after descending only ~25 feet and it seemed like the entire mountain was about to slide down. Road's in decent shape; the stream didn't look bad at the crossing and I saw a few cars make it all the way up (mine didn't even come close).
