Red Castle
Summit ridge of 12566 on right, main summit of Red Castle (12700') left. Red Castle is probably the most interesting peak above 12000' in the state of Utah. Does anybody know anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody that has climbed it?

An excellent photo of the red rock, and the contrast with the blue sky came out really well!
I'm afraid I don't even know anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows ANYBODY who knows anybody who knows anybody that climbed it, but after seeing your pic - I feel like climbing it myself! :-)
Greetings,
Eric

Nobody knows nobody who knows.

"Nobody knows,
Nobody knows but me..
That I sometimes cry.
If I could pretend that I'm asleep,
When my tears start to fall..
I peek out from behind these walls,
I think nobody knows ... at ALL."

I've never heard of anyone bagging this one. Great shot!

Thanks! It's hard to imagine doing this one without something falling on your head.

Thanks, you will pass right by it on your way to Wilson when you make doing the other 13000 footers one of your priorities :)

Been pondering that one for a while, havn't seen a route I'd try yet, of course I'm a wimp when it gets rotten.

Yeah, me too. I've just recently made it up the ones on both sides though, 12566 and 12338. I've gotten some good close up views of Red Castle and no magic route has become apparent.

I was looking at the photo you took from the north and made a tentative line up it, though in this and other photos that east face seems much more steep than I thought. It seems like from this photo it could possibly be accessed from the south as well, if I could down climb from the saddle through the cliff bands between these two peaks, then follow the terrace north a bit, then pick a route up.

The east face of this one reminds me a bit of the Razorback Terrace traverse I've done on Timp a couple times, similar gradient and exposure, tons of choss. Pure bait on these photos of this peak...

I wish I had gone closer to the edge to get more of the face in the picture.
