Need to check out other stuff here.
The park is now open, not sure when it happened.
I hiked up the PCT from I-5 and then up the Castle Dome Trail to the base of the dome, it didn't look like anything I wanted to do solo, so scrambled around awhile on the center rocks. While having lunch there I heard some voices and finally saw some climbers coming down the dome. Now I know the route, just like the dotted red line shows for that page! Still not something I want to do alone!
had fun there but it should be noted that the park is clsed and you add an hour hike or so to get to boundary from the I-5- from soap creek exit (1 exit north of park exit)?
Just a minor correction from a local. Its soda creek exit. And it is the first exit north of the park exit. A little turn out leads you to the PCT. Follow this to the park trails.
Was on the way to Mt. Shasta when I saw this area by the roadside and figured I'd have a detour. Camped overnight then took off down the trail and shortly lost it due to snow fall. Reckon I did some unintentional climbing on Six Toe Rock before seeing the real path far down below, retreating then heading up between Castle Crags and Castle Dome only to find non-shifting clouds and the beginnings of a blizzard. Amazingly atmospheric due to no-one else being around.
Granite spires abound! Countless possibilities here.
