Red Castle-12700

The main Red Castle summit (12700') not looking so red from the northeast at 1pm. This picture makes it look like 12700 has a wide flat base on the right, but it is very misleading. There is a very sharp drop between the shadowed face and the sunlit foreground on the right. From the upper slopes of 12338. September-7-2010

12,700, still scouring a line...

on this photo and the other you've posted from the other angle. It's on the list... that and making sure my life insurance policy is still valid, lol. Looks like a good amount of choss up there. Seems like going up it is possible, the descent without pro and going solo on the other hand... whew.

Re: 12,700, still scouring a line...

The part that scares me the most is the possibility of spontaneous rockfall.
