Come add to your Rainier 100 Peaks and round out your scramble season before the Mowich Lake road closes for winter.  We will only attempt Castle Peak, starting a little later than usual in the morning, and ending before darkness, with shorter days here.  Please note that leader has not been to this peak before, so will ask participants to assist in navigation.  More details to be provided to group in the future.  Aiming for dry rock, but forecast now looks optimistic for this.
