Climbed Fall of 1976 per the Hill guide. Look for the longest crack splitting the face of the Castle. From the base of the face, you can see a piton about twenty feet up and right. Head for this pin and then stay in the right most crack.

Climb for about 120 feet to a nice stance at two good pins, about level with a small pine tree. Move about fifteen feet left to the crack with the pine tree and then climb to the top.


Descend the El Tecolote/Castle gully half way to the obvious shoulder. Head out to the shoulder and rap to the base. Alternately, descend all the way, then go north and up to the base.


The FA party used hooks. P1 can be free climbed at about 10+.
