Nice easy climb starting with Conundrum on the way up via the South Ridge route. I descended using the NE Ridge and had a great glissade down below the NE ridge. I drove to ~11,000 feet and parked at the junction with the Pearl Pass road.

crzyjtNW ridge, snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2006

Got this one on my second attempt. Parked at 12,500 and climbed to the saddle via non standard detour with my skis. Snow was continuous to saddle. Dumped pack, ran up castle, then, back at the saddle, grabbed my pack, headed up Conundrum and skied the Conundrum Couloir. Partner ate it in the choke and tumbled 300 feet. Very scary, but he was alright.

Date Climbed: Apr 15, 2006

Scott

Climbed with Brock.

April 14:

We climbed up to 11,430 feet and camped. Stormy all day, and we saw on small avalanche.

April 15th:

It was 9F in the morning and we climbed Castle via the Northeast Ridge and descended the north face couloir. Climb was mostly easy, but parts of the ridge traverse had some treacherous sugar snow, that was impossible to get a bite with the ice axe. Very warm day, and the snow was soft, so we arrived back at the car at 9 pm, a long day.

Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2005

altitude14er

I climbed this with my friends Dave and Mark (aka "asphazell"). We all brought cramp-ons for the snow portion on the ridge but didn't need them. The snow was very packed by the 25th this year. We didn't get to spend long on the summit because storm clouds were building quick - as they often do in the Elk Range! We found an awesome spot to glissade down off of the Northeast Face...worked well but I cut myself with my ice axe..not a good thing to do!

My second 14er, and the one that started the obsession. Five years later, I had climbed them all.

I drove all the way to the mine for this one. The weather was pretty strange. No problem going up but at the summit, the clouds moved in quick, it got fairly dark but it was as quiet and still at the top as I've ever witnessed. Very strange. It downpoured as soon as i got back to the truck. Perfect timing.

Very entertaining climb! Some intellegent college kids (yeah, they were my age) decided to find their way down the mountain by sliding down on trash bags. Horrible idea. One broke his femur and he had to be taken to the hospital by helicopter. Moral of the story: find a better way off the mountain :)

Fun snow climb and glissade when I did it-- unbelievable views of the Elks' fourteeners-- fun road if your vehicle can take two or three pretty nasty spots (if it can, you start at 12,800')
