Description

Located just below mid-ridgeline on the approach to Arlington and Cathedral Peaks, The Sandcastle is a formation within spitting distance from the trail, and hosts-- more or less-- one solitary line.

The rock quality is generally terrible (hence, the name), and efforts to veer from the direct line may likely be rewarded with boot-fulls of sand. But the crack itself... is AWESOME.

Grab your water, tape, and longsleeves and get ready to fight your way up the iron-rich interior of the seam!

Getting There

Approach as you would for Cathedral Peak, following Arlington Ridge upwards, to its approximate half-way point. The grade eases here, and Panic Town can be seen clearly in the gully below and to the right. The formation should be visible straight ahead.

40-60 minutes, depending on parking and fitness. Both top and base can be accessed within two minutes from the trail.
