4th time up this bad-boy. Went up and over to get "Castleabra".
Considered descending the Conundrum saddle but didn't feel like dealing with the scree.
Castle is a good peak.

Summited Castle and Conundrum via the standard route in perfect conditions. The scramble on the ridges was fun, the views were awesome. Descended through the loose scree to Montezuma Basin. These were the 5th and 6th out of 15 peaks on my 2012 CO. trip.

Parked at the footbridge 1.5 miles up the road, and did Castle from there.

The rain pounded on the roof of the Jeep all night and I worried his outing would be a post cause, but an early wake up and departure from camp put our feet on this summit! With Cheryl and Jill - hell yeah, ladies!

Finally got this one taken care of! Decided to just do the quick & dirty NE ridge to git 'er done. Thanks to Eric for convincing me to get up early to do it & avoid the rains (which actually finally happened!). Left 'TH (campsite)' @ 4.51. After some interesting routefinding which slowed us down a little, finally got back on track, & on to the ridge. Summited @ 9.57. Enjoyed great views of Bells & surrounding Elk surroundings, & left summit @ 10.27. Uneventful descent put us back at the campsite (10,100') @ 13.43. Great day, & glad to be on another climb & peak again, bro.

Climbed in conjunction with Conundrum. Summited both peaks during the storm. UNGODLY cold (-8F to -13F) and windy. Sun came out just as we crested the summit of Castle. That was wicked cool! First 14ers of the winter season.

Did Castle Peak with my wife in perfect conditions (both). There still was a lot of snow. All the way from the Castle Creek parking lot to the summit. That day there was one other party skiing. We just had our boots and crampons, which was quicker in the ascent, but 10 times slower in the descent. It was my wife's first 14er/4000er and she was very happy with it.

Inadvertantly did the Castle Moat route and had a blast, combined with Conundrum for a splendid loop in perfect weather.

The summit ridge was awesome, with some winds, but otherwise great day.

Nice hike from the Pearl Pass junction. The summit ridge had some snow, making some of the easier moves a bit dicey...plus had some clouds moving in to make it quick, and cut out Conundrum. The summit is beautiful, and the new snow & clouds added to the mountain perspective.

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.

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.

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.
