wyopeakMikeparty peak  Sucess!


I hiked and scrambled up to the summit a few times in the 90's with some friends. One time we brought a boom box and we ate some strange fungi(back in the party days). That was some wild memories of hanging out on the summit turret.

Darren9high point of the pass  Sucess!


The first time I climbed this peak it was in winter, and I was pleased to see it was so close and lots of options for daytrips of all sorts. A great training peak.

Left the skis at the bottom and booted up the chute.

Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2006


Reached the summit three times, twice during summer and once at winter in my snowshoes (absolutely love the scrambling towards the end). Can't wait to take our 1 1/2 year old son there again!

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.

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.
