Matt Lemkevia NE ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2011

Matt Lemke

A great day of clear fall weather after a week of not so great weather. Snow and ice on the ridge made the ascent interesting. We coupled in Corundrum as well.

Did this from the very start of the road on a cold and mostly overcast morning with some light snow falling. Winter is coming fast!

You can drive fairly high on this one. Reached the summit in less than two hours with Alex. A good intro 14er. One of the best summit views, and near perfect conditions.

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2011


I climbed Castle with my fellow CMC BMS student, Marco. This was my first time in the Elks. We camped below site 3 along the road and hiked all the way from there. We started around 4:45AM and arrived at the summit at 9:30. We had planned to do Conundrum, but the clouds were already rolling in, and the glissade back into the basin looked pretty dodgy, so we had to be content with Castle only. We we able to hitch a ride from the uppermost parking lot back to our campsite. I'll be back sometime to do Conundrum, when snow conditions are better.

Did the ol' Castle Moat to conundrum traverse in ideal conditions. It was very sloppy snow in the lower parts of the hike.

Summited Castle via Northeast Ridge. Continued on to Conundrum, then returned back the same way. Nice hiking/scrambling with a little bit of snow, great weather, gorgeous views!

Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2010


A bit of new snow, went up the Northeast ridge, traversed to Conundrum and down the saddle, I was surprised by the depth and size of the crevases in the snow field going all the way into the tarn.

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2010


Climbed along with Conundrum Peak. In my opinion, these two peaks were the easiest 14ers I've climbed so far. I wasn't even sore after wards, it was great and the weather was fantastic. The hardest part about this climb was descending the ice field below the Castle-Conundrum saddle. It was very slippery with lots of falling rock.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010


Couldn't have asked for a better day.
Nice to get up in the altitudes again, where the air is crisp, cool, clean, and thin!
The slide down was great fun too.
