The topographic maps do not show the pinnacle of Castle Rock Spire very well. It is a detached spire to the east of the bulkier 12,540' peak. The map label is also misleading--the 12,540' peak was named "Rainbow Peak" by James Whitham in the early 1900s. A knowledgeable local guide thinks that the spire is less than 100' lower than Rainbow Peak, with a prominence of less than 300'.
