edevartMini Loop - Descending the South Face.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2007


I thought I'd try to make a loop of it. Standard Route to Summit to SE Ridge to Warren Lake Trail back to the truck at the PCT Rest Area. The SE ridge is very loose and I couldn't find a way through without dropping low onto the south face of Castle. Decided it wasn't worth it to climb back up to reach the SE ridge again. Descended via the south face back to the PCT.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2007


Climbed both east and west sides of the summit block because the rock was that great (beautiful holds and solid as a rock). The class 4 west side was much shorter, and barely felt like class 4. 3 hours round trip.

Hiked it with my unprepared but willing and stubborn enough to not quit girlfriend. Awesome day to hike, clear skies warm but not hot, no wind. Ended up climbing 3 of the major turrets before I got the right one and climbing the western face rather than the eastern of the true summit(my fault, I had read the reports on here already) signed the register, let that purely serene feel of completion sink in (which hadn't been signed in a week even though the mountain was swarming with people) and headed back out in a meandering and relaxing 5 hours. Still quite a bit of snow on the trail but easy to stay on track.

Date Climbed: May 26, 2007


It was a very nice day. Some snow still on the trail made the PCT hard to follow. However, I made it up and climbed the last 30 feet to the true summit. That took a lot of extra time.

Snowshoed up to the ridge with Don in really nice conditions and then headed over to climb the east turret. Great views. We could see all the way to Lassen and Shasta.

skied up to the base of the summit block, then ditched the gear and made a quick run for the summit before skiing down.. pretty icy.

So much fun! Summiting via the SW made me feel like Spiderman - my first class 3/4. Ignored the pesky insects at summit to take in the stunning views.

Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Drove up with Mammen and Truman from the Bay Area on Sat. morning. Started hiking at 10:30 am - snow wasn't too bad - didn't take snowshoes. It was a perfect day.

The class 4 variation on the summit block was a lot of fun. I just wish it lasted longer!

Back on Castle again after 2 years. Climbed with my dog CJ in a couple of inches to maybe a foot of snow in places. Views were great. You could see the Sutter Buttes and the Coastal Range.
