Last 14ers in 2010, beautiful day, no snow in the saddle between Castle and Conundrum made the descent spicy.

BLongInteresting Connection  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2012


I scrambled from Cathedral Lake up unnamed 13,828' and then traversed the 2nd - 4th class ridge-line to summit Conundrum Peak and Castle Peak. I was also hoping to summit Cathedral Peak from the ridge-line on 13,828, but did not have time. I descended via the main hiking trail on Castle Peak. The ridge between 13,828 and Conundrum Peak was a blast, including several towers to navigate over/around.

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2012


Started at about 4:20am and summited via the Northeast Ridge at about 7:30am or so. Then traversed over to Conundrum. Descended via the saddle through the nasty scree - it was only really bad for a hundred feet or so - the rest was just frustrating and tedious.

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.

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!

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2012


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.

Date Climbed: Dec 22, 2011


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.
