Castle Peak, North Face. Castle Peak is located in the Pasayten Wilderness just northeast of Mount Hozomeen. The peak is a scramble on three sides, but its broad north face has route possibilities of 1000 feet on solid, blankish granite. In September Fred Beckey, Phil Leather- man, and I chose a route up a broad blocky buttress on the far right side of the face. Climbing was mainly fourth class with a few fifth-class sections. Grade II.
