Overnight backpack started with Andesite, to Castle, to Basin and down to Paradise Lake. Good fun and lovely setting at the lake. Really enjoyed the class 3 section on the East Turret.

Went looking for snow, found dirt and wind. Some snow in the shade, icy and thin. Snow in the trees, almost none on the standard route.

sierramtngoatCastle Pass / east side of east turret  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2011


Hiked up with my wife Anna; it was warm with a gentle breeze to the west. The down-climb of the east turret was spookier than I remembered, but quite do-able. We saw a lot of flying spider webs and tons stuck in the trees on the hike down, bizarre?

Route Climbed: Castle Pass / east side of east turret Date Climbed: May 22, 2004 - Successful!
Solo hike; good snow coverage though the valley below made the cross country to Castle pass easy. Got very windy as I climbed the west ridge though; it was very windy on top too. Fun class three scramble on the east side of the east turret (summit block).

I've done this several times, but the first was my first snowshoeing hike with my buddy John. Awesome wind-blown snow features on the trees.

jaredsgreat skiing / camping  Sucess!


been up here a couple times - just over 2.5 hours from SF, an easy skin up to the saddle and then short climb to the summit. great sw-facing turns in the spring. prob the quickest place from the city to get on your skis.

Date Climbed: Dec 19, 2009


A great peak for snowshoeing or winter camping. Even as out of shape as I am I made the northern tower in just under 2.5 hours from the snow park. Great views and plenty of shoots to climb and runouts to practice self arrest.

ElGrecoEast Turret  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 17, 2011


Icy snowshoe up the West ridge. Very enjoyable scramble/climb up the east turret (the true summit). Rock is solid, but some chunks did come off from the party above us. Wear a helmet or climb one at a time. Beautiful views of other Tahoe peaks, Lassen and Diablo.
