This is a great route for two selfish reasons: 1.) If you have a modified 4x4 vehicle, and, 2.) if you only need to summit Casco Peak. If this is the case for you, I suggest driving up to and past the Champion Mine (take the road on the left at the mine to keep going up). You can make it to the saddle looking into Lackawanna Gulch, and Casco Peak will be right there in front of you. To gain the ridge, you do need to suffer through a loose, dirt, scree hike up to the ridge. After that, the ridge is solid, and you can make it spicy by climbing on the ridge itself, if you like.
