The view of the Elk range to the NW from the top of Castle was amazing!

Climbed the northeast ridge from the 4WD parking area. Went across the saddle to Conundrum, and descended down the northwest ridge route. Slid down some sketchy stuff at the top due to lack of snow, scraped up my leg real nice. Glissading after that was great. Next time I won't come in August.

Approaching this peak from the west is much more difficult than the east side, but still a great climb!

Beautiful peak. Nice crevasse, too, for a semi-permanent snowfield.

Cruised up to the top. Great view of the Elks and the Sawatch range. Can't wait to get back to the Elks, but I hate the hubbub of Aspen.

Super warm temperatures made me leary of the Conundrum Couloir, so I climbed the NE Ridge of Castle and traversed the NW Ridge to Conundrum. Despite the Elk's rep for bad rock, there is some fun scrambling along the NE Ridge if you go looking for it, class 3/4 with solid rock.

The snow wasn't in great shape, but still a good ascent with some great glissades on the way down. Conundrum and Malamute were nice additions to the day.

After climbing and skiing the Conundrum couloir, did the same on Castle's north face. Cold and windy. Snow was hard - great for climbing, not so much for skiing, but fun all the same.

Made a last-minute decision to climb the NE ridge because it looked easier. It wasn't, so we (trishapajean and I) descended the NW ridge. VERY slow ascent and two great glissades on the way down.

Climbed the north face couloir to ridge and scrambled to summit. Unable to ski direct from summit so downclimbed to saddle and skied the north face from there.

What a great mountain! Definitely a wonderful intro to the Elks and there super steep and loose scree/boulderfields. Despite a near-death experience when a friend had a several-hundred pound boulder ROLL OVER HIM(!!!), and questionable weather all around us, it was one of my favorite 14ers thus far. (Refer to James Hay's trip report for info. on possible route-finding mistakes in the boulderfield as there are several misleading cairns nestled among the rocks.)

It was a great snow/scree climb. The weather was pleasant basically the whole time except for right when we reached the top clouds surrounded us so we didnt spend much time up there. Overall it was a blast, great views, exciting atmosphere, and a good experience for the first time summiting a fourteener.

Second time's a charm, after failing due to weather three weeks ago. Also climbed Conundrum as well, headed to Buena Vista and did Huron Peak the following day.

The only thing with this peak is that the scree gets annoying on the descent! Beautiful mountain though.
