Nice scramble. Came up through Knapsack pass, scrambled up First Mother and then back down and over to Castle. Fun day.

Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2014


Topped out 20 ft shy of the true summit. I was solo and it started raining. No protection + class 4 + wet rock = bad idea. I settled for the sub summit to the west. Amazing view of Pinnacle and of course Rainier looks great from all the Tatoosh peaks.

Unicorn, Foss, The Castle, and Pinnacle. See my report:

We climbed a technical line rather than the 4th class scramble route.

pingzingr#2 of 3 for the day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2012


The middle summit of a good day in the Tatoosh that included Pinnacle Peak, The Castle, and Foss Peak. Went up on the FAR right side of the north ridge that hung over the southeast wall. Better options (that I downclimbed) in the middle for unprotected climbing.

With Fred. Combined with Pinnacle. Went in the regular way to Pinnacle then around from the east side of the The Castle back to Reflection Lake to make a nice loop. Still tons of snow - ice axe and crampons were helpful. Rock itself was dry. Managed to snag the one decent weather day - drove home in the rain the next day.

A nice winter solo day trip. The biggest obstacle was getting through the gate at Longmire. I was lucky enough to be there when a ranger drove up. The snow was perfect and the rock not as loose as advertised. I downclimbed the 4th class face, as I hadn't brought a rope for the rap station. Beautiful views!

We climbed the relatively solid class 4 on the SE side and rappelled down. A nice airy summit.

First time was with Joseph in 1994.

A few years later all but one of the six of us on the OSAT Tatoosh Traverse did the scramble, both up and down. The other times I've climbed The Castle, we've done the rap off the summit.

I know. We are really behind in signing summit logs--been too busy. Anyway, we enjoyed a beautiful day of peak bagging in the Tatoosh Range. We did the standard routes up, Denman, Plummer, Lane, The Casterl and Pinnacle. Breathtaking views.

Hiked up Eagle and Chutla the next day in gorgeous weather. Had the peaks to ourselves.

Led the short climb after traversing over from Unicorn. Placed one cam in this quick easy climb. Due to the exposure we set up a line from a block to the summit too. Not sure how but we had this mountain to ourselves on this sunny warm weekend day.

Great views on the traverse from Unicorn, and the scramble to the top had some fun moves.
