justingEast side of summit block  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2009


Do I still get credit for a winter ascent if it was 40 degrees on the summit? Entertaining scramble while my partner watched from below. Despite the warm weather it was a fun couple of days of snowshoeing.

SummitJunkieGreat climb with family  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2008


Took my girlfriend and her family from Wisconsin up to the summit. Footing is VERY treacherous most of the way up, BE CAREFULL! Mom slipped about 100 feet from top and banged up her knee but made it down ok.

Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2008


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

sacplannerSnow or Ice?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 13, 2007


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.

96avs01Quick day outing  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2007


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.

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.

metasyn11Both sides  Sucess!
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.

shaggypFor the moment I was King  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2007


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.

hgrapidUp the last 30 feet  Sucess!
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.

Date Climbed: May 6, 2007


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!
