“The most common descent from the highpoint of Castle Lake.”— Forthright
Also early in the season or in the spring, the lowest bit before the lake will require bushwacking to get back to the lake trail. The trail doesn't go completely around the lake, as the cliffs on the south side of the lake prevent that.
The lake can completely freeze to the point you can walk on it (have done it with snow shoes in January), but don't count on that.
This is a D4-D5 descent.
