with Jon and Simon from Reno. Snowshoed up from Donner Summit to shoulder of Castle, and then traversed along ridge. A front was coming in, so we got blasted with wind on the ridge. Great views !

Basin/Castle Baggin'  Sucess!

Bagged it along with Castle Peak with Rad. No pen in the register, so I tried using blood, which didn't work well, charcoal from a match, also didn't work well, then finally carved out my name in the cardboard of the booklet.

Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: April 10, 2004  Sucess!

Bagged this peak along with Castle Peak. The ridge between Basin and Castle was mostly snow free, but the wind was howling! The summit of the peak was still covered in snow, as was the final ascent. Excellent standing glissades on the way back. Great hike in combo with Castle.

This was one of my favourite snowshoe outings of the winter, mostly because it was very short.
