Map of the Castle Peaks Hikes/Climbs

This map is taken from the USGS 24k series. The red GPS track corresponds to the red track in the 100k overview map. The waypoints and peak IDs are described in the accompanying article. Use the zoomed topo map to see waypoints near the summit of Dove.

The shaded relief assumes a light source from the west; perhaps a sunset or a nuclear blast near L.A. The digital elevation model used for shading is very coarse, and even the topo map belies the ruggedness of the range.
