Snowshoe outing on new year's eve day with my father-in-law. The snow was fresh and a break in the weather made for a fine day.

Starting at the trailhead, and with snow covering the trail, just headed straight up the slope through the trees and snow to the summit.

Castle/Basin/Andesite. The top was a bug infested mess. Cool red rocks though.

Date Climbed: Dec 22, 2012


Climbed this peak in a raging snow storm with a group of five. Our original plan was to climb Red Lake Peak in Carson Pass. The weather was terrible, Hwy 88 was closed, and we wanted to get on top of something. Andesite peak turned out to be a great option that day.

Overnight backpack started with Andesite, to Castle, to Basin and down to Paradise Lake. Good fun and lovely setting at the lake.

went from Castle Peak to Basin, then down to the meadow and up to Andesite. There was snow snow and ice, but generally a pretty dry winter.

Planned to do Castle, but from the pass Andesite had way more snow and way less people (actually no people at all), plus I'd never been. It was nice and peaceful plus got to teach my girlfriend some self-arrest on the steep slushy snow.

Date Climbed: Feb 28, 2010


Dropped the east face (scary cornice!) and stayed in Castle Valley. Took the trail by storm on ski's (bobsledding anyone?) and made it to the car in 5 minutes flat after tagging and dropping Castle and Basin. Helluva day.
