Castle Dome Peak
February 26, 2011

Castle Dome Peak as seen from near the mine museum the day before. Man what a cliffy top!

Another view of the summit, now from the canyon from the northwest. The pinnacle is to the left (north) of the summit

Neat sunset at camp

Closer to the top. Our route generally went right to the cliffs, then left at the margin to the saddle just right of the pinnacle.

Scott hikes along the cliffs below the summit block

The pinnacle, as seen from below the summit. It's about 60 feet high!

Scott ascends the class-3 gullies as we near the top

The pinnacle again, as seen from directly below the summit

I made it!

Summit view northwest

Scott descends. There's the pinnacle again

Shot of the upper slopes and the 20-foot class-3/4 crux, from within the saddle beneath the pinnacle.

Parting shot, with cholla
