      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Castle Peak - NW Ridge 9/21/2011

Recommended Posts

Trip: Castle Peak - NW Ridge

 

Date: 9/21/2011

 

Trip Report:

Josh and I spent five days paddling, portaging, hiking, scwacking, and climbing to nab one of Washington's most remote summits. Here is our story:

Gear Notes:

boat and tennies

 

Approach Notes:

Castle trail turnoff is marked by a sign to Hozomeen (shown in vid), although it's invisible at that point. The trail itself is blown out by a slide for the first several hundred yards. It's decent after that save for the last two miles which have been obliterated by avalanches.

Awesome Pat!

Although in your videos I really like the "Night Visit". You do seem way too nice however, as most of my buddies would have killed and ate that bastard right quick.

FWIW, the paddle up in to the flooded Devil's Creek canyon on Ross Lake comes highly recommended. It's a very cool, narrow canyon with lots of hanging gardens clinging to the walls.

Wow great looking all around trip guys, exotic really. You could charge big bucks to guide something like that.

I believe one of them was involved in an International issue involving large zoo animals.

other than wanting a remote and cool trip involving paddling, how come you didn't go in via manning park?

 

Let's just say certain legal issues had to be considered when planning this trip...
