There is a 40ft crag about 1-200' elevation above the Castle, just below the Turtle Snowfield on the approach to the Kautz Ice Chute. The rock quality is actually decent. This offers a great pastime at high camp. The Castle camp is at 9,200' and the Upper Castle is just under 9,400'.

The routes range from 5.6 (SE Prow) to much harder (S Face).


Easy walk around the NW side of the formation to get to the top for building TRs.


Toprope - there are some large boulders on top of the cliff, as well as a lot of loose blocks and flakes - so be careful.
