Castle Peak - North Aspect
This peak is #42 in Prominence List for Washington .Located just south of the border with Manning Park, and south of Mount Frosty. High summit just south of Manning Park near the Pacific Crest Trail. It dominates the view when looking south in Manning Park. The north face is a steep granite wall with several buttresses and more than a few developed routes in the 5.9-5.11 range. The south face is much more gentle, but there is no trail to reach it, so some bushwork is required.
