A fun climb on the North East Ridge. It snowed a little bit. It was horrible rock as usual in the Elks. The glissading was a kick.

We camped pretty low and hiked from there, was kind of funny to see how high the road actually takes you...

Tried it via the west ridge of conundrum. Monsoon weather pattern. Clouds closed in above and below about 12,700 feet. Lost my nerve and went back down. Hot springs were some consolation.

Started before the first stream crossing. Nice hike in great weather. Descended via the Castle-Conundrum saddle. Perfect snow for a quick descent.

Got up there after Conundrum. Started at 10,200ft, total 5,200ft vert per gps. Snow is melting out at top of snowfield, its going fast. Conundrum couloir is still looking sweet. NW ridge is very loose. NE ridge is not for people afraid of heights. Some class 3 moves in there w/A LOT of exposure. Some very fun mellow glissades to be had!

Drove the Montezuma Rd as far as I could. Started up at 7:00AM with a snow ascent to the saddle between Castle and Conundrum. Hiked the ridge up to Conundrum Peak and then back across to Castle Peak. Hiked the NE ridge of Castle Peak back down to the snow and glissaded to the road and back to the truck at 12:27PM. Fun day with perfect weather. My 38th 14'er............sweet!

Amazing but long hike, probably my favorite of 6 CO 14ers I've done. Love the Elk Range. My brother, being kind of new to mountaineering, kind of freak out at the exposure on the ridge, but loved the glissading on the way back. We got lost towards the end (guy at summit saw us and told us correct path), climbed up a scary couloir to get back on track. Unfortunately my brother lost a glove there and he had to climb it again! Great experience.

Missed the turn (imagine that) to Montezuma Basin and ended up on the east side of Castle. Climbed an unnamed couloir to the northeast ridge, ended up losing elevation and then climbing the upper half of the north face couloir. Made for a long but fun day after traversing over to Conundrum and back to the TH.

7/4/05 - Fun climb up the standard route from 10,200 ft. There was plenty of snow left in Montezuma Basin and I got in my first ever little glissade, although I had no idea there was such a term for it back then.

9/3/05 - Another ascent of the standard route, but traversed to Conundrum as well. Descended from the Castle - Conundrum saddle which was stupid as it was very icy.

5/21/09 - Stayed overnight at the Tagert Hut and climbed Castle's East Face, a fun snow route. Glissaded from the Castle - Conundrum saddle and added on a quick trip up Malemute afterwards.

12/16/11 - Winter ascent via standard route, 10 1/2 hours RT from Ashcroft.

Hiked the West Ridge from camp at Conundrum Hot Springs with my friend Keith. We descended via the West Face to avoid returning over 'Castleabra'. I think that it would have been easier to return the way that we came because the scree fields were loose and nasty. The hot springs were incredible after a long day of hiking!

Summited via NE ridge route. NW ridge route had too much steep scree just below the Conundrum Ridge. Diminishing weather prevented a scamper over to Conundrum Peak.
