bigbadgooConditions are nice  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 23, 2014
Longer trip than we were expecting from the snopark but conditions are good. Some cornices forming but otherwise the snow pack seems purty stable. Used traction but no snowshoes needed.

Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2013
After first big winter storm hit a few days ago I wanted to get out in some winter conditions, first going up the 3 towers on Castle then over to Basin. Foolishly left snowshoes at home thinking the snow wasn't deep enough yet...that's how it can take over 7 hours to cover 9 miles... Trip Report

After looking at it and bypassing it for years, finally climbed it as an add-on to a winter ascent of Castle Peak with SMG. High winds and not much snow...but it was a fun little summit anyway.

with Jon and Simon from Reno. Snowshoed up from Donner Summit to shoulder of Castle, and then traversed along ridge. A front was coming in, so we got blasted with wind on the ridge. Great views !
