Ski tour to Castle and then over to Andesite with V. Skipped the East Turret, didn't look that appealing in AT boots...

After submitting Andesite to the west in 30-40+ mph winds, we went Castle Peak on the direct route (luckily the winds died down). No snow for a few weeks, temps dropping around zero, and high winds made for an icey trek. Crampons would've been nice, but the teeth on our snowshoes were sufficient. All and all another great summit of Castle Peak.

Short daytrip to Castle and Basin Peaks. A little recon on the chutes between Castle and Basin, otherwise this was a revenge trip on Castle after a winter outing found us without certain gear for the icy conditions.

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.

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.

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.

8/7/14 - combined with Basin and Andesite. Fun loop!

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.

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.
