Went up the Ogre and some side routes. Saw way too many snakes :-) Been to the area twice and would like to stay a week or so up high in the park, climbing routes and playing the banjo or Uke by a fire. Some really prime, unpopulated routes to be found. The Shipman guidebook is great for the area
Was on the way to Mt. Shasta when I saw this area by the roadside and figured I'd have a detour. Camped overnight then took off down the trail and shortly lost it due to snow fall. Reckon I did some unintentional climbing on Six Toe Rock before seeing the real path far down below, retreating then heading up between Castle Crags and Castle Dome only to find non-shifting clouds and the beginnings of a blizzard. Amazingly atmospheric due to no-one else being around.
