Castle Mountain

Silver City (Castle Mt)

Another good find by Dave Thomson (especially if you like getting away from the crowds and have a high tolerence for wood ticks). Sport and gear routes spanning a range of grades on Lake Louise (Gog) quartzite.

Updated topo - 2014 by Mark Carlson. A higher quality version is in the TABVAR Facebook page's files section.

Update for 2018 is on the Sloper Climbing App, available on the App Store and Google Play. (Free app, but the Silver City area likely requires a subscription)

Update for 2019 is here, see below.

Sam's Gift 13a, 190m

From Sam Eastman via the TABVAR Facebook page.

Sam Lambert and myself put in a fully bolted 5 pitch rig on the lower and farthest east buttress of Castle.

Sam's gift 13a.

Approach is the same as for Castles in the sky. Use the same trail as for Eisenhower tower, except when you break above tree line look left to a rambling scree ledge that splits the lower buttress.

1st 12+ 35M. Slight overhung and cryptic.

2nd. 12+45M. Dihedral to Burly roof. (fixed draw at crux.)
