hi everyone, sean here. some questions for the desert rats out there. hoping to maybe get an early start on fine jade, and then run over and do the kor-ingalls or north face on castleton.

my questions are as follows:
what is the hike like between the two formations?
is my plan do-able?
am i overly ambitious?
am i crazy?
am i stupid?
do you like pina-coladas and getting caught in the rain?
are you my mommy?

the hike is an easy but airy walk along the ridgeline between the two - no biggie. should take you about 10 minutes tops to get from castleton to fine jade, and maybe another 20 to walk along the bottom of the rectory to the priest if you want to go for the trifecta.

As atg200 notes, the walk between the formations is short and casual. And, your plan is certainly reasonable -- FJ is a half-day climb (with quick rappels) even if you're not in a hurry.
