Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: June, 2001
Climbed with Ryle. The setting was spectacular, but the rock was not. The route was only 5.8, but there were many loose sections to test one's nerves. The "Potato Chip Flake" (a few pitches up) is going to come off one of these days.
Route Climbed: Regular Route Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2002
After turning around on Shasta due to inclement weather, Randy, George and I headed over to Castle Dome for a fun day of some easy climbing and great views. We had the summit all to ourselves - quite a treat. We roped up, but I'm not really sure this was necessary. Read more about this trip in my SP Trip Report.
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, awake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it reality."
