“Good continuous line from Andesite Peak.”— Forthright
This is what I've found is a good way to get down Andesite without having to bushwack and connecting continuous slopes. There are some features on the way down that you can jump off when there is enough snow, but because of their short runout it's definitely not a standout. Follows roughly the "Hole in the Wall" mountain bike trail for some of the bottom half.
Access either by skinning up it, or accessing the Andesite Peak from the Castle Peak /Andesite Peak Saddle. I usually do this as the last run of the day going back to the car or as a quick one and done lap.
