Difficulty: medium
: from June to September

Note: roped ascents to Castore are organised with a maximum of 3 climbers, plus the guide.

If you put an ascent to Castore as a must on your “4000” bucket list, then bear in mind that this particular climb completed in one day is not a challenge for everyone. If your training is excellent, why not make this challenging one-day climb your goal to pursue this summer.
