Casco Peak is a Centennial 13er located in the northern Sawatch Range. It is the 69th highest peak in the state of Colorado, sitting just to the west of Mount Elbert and southwest of French Peak. The peak itself is often climbed with French Peak (13,940 ft. - ranked) and Frasco Benchmark (13,786 ft. unranked) as seen in the picture above.

Thanks for the comment! It really was a solid route and a great day! That area is a spot I haven't done much exploring in to date so that made it even sweeter. Hope you've been having a great spring yourself!
