North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Mountains, Castle Peak, North Face

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.
