Route: Access road, Long Trail, (Mt. Ellen), Long Trail, (Cutt's Peak), Long Trail, (Nancy Hanks Peak), Long Trail, ski trail, (Lincoln Peak), Long Trail, (Mt. Abraham), Long Trail, (Lincoln Peak), Organ Grinder

Hiked up access road from Super Bravo Quad to top of Castlerock (as to avoid wet grass). Ski trails on this side snow free.

Long Trail snow free as well. Long Trail had slippery rock, minor mud, and some pooled water areas. Otherwise, generally dry (until a powerful downpour this afternoon). Beelined it down the old gondola lift line, reaching the bottom just as the downpour started.
