A nice climb. Met denalibound up there, a very nice guy. Make sure you go to the right peak! (if you don't see the tube lying there keep going!) Started at 10,200ft, total 5,200ft vert per gps. Snow is going fast at top of snowfield to saddle. Conundrum couloir is still looking sweet, I thought about it, but I was alone, late, and it looked pretty steep. Climb from saddle is not as loose as Castle - which is nice. 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 37th 14'er............sweet!

We climbed Castle first then traversed over to Conundrum. It was a bit overcast with a bit of new snow on the ground.

9/3/05 - Missed this summit on my first climb of Castle Peak and made sure to visit it on my return trip a few months later. Still have my eye on the Coundrum Couloir so chances are I'll be there again before too long.

12/26/11 - Winter ascent from Ashcroft. Traversed from Castle and then back.

8-22-07 second time climbing Conundrum. We didn't get Conundrum the last time we did Castle so we made sure to climb it this time.

8-29-09 another time climbing Castle and Conundrum. We reclimbed Castle this time instead of dropping down from the saddle.

This was my first time climbing Conundrum. I climbed Castle so since I was there I went over and got Conundrum as well.

I bagged the summit just before the 'winter' storm front moved over the Rockies! The clouds closing in on the Bells & Pyramid to my West was awesome. About a foot of poorly consolidated snow in Montezuma Basin. At times, I was in a white out :) Not the best day to be solo!

Over from Castle Peak. A great day for sure, but not enough snow. Next time I won't come in August.

Went by surprisingly fast. Nothing real big or exciting about this mountain. Nice views of Castle though.

Did the traverse and then came back to Castle to meet my friends who were just arriving at the summit of Castle. They were skeptical when I had told them I had already gone to the other peak and then come back already!

The highlight for me was the 15 minute nap on top! A good day.

Climbed and skied the Conundrum Couloir. It was cold and windy, so i wasn't sure if it was going to warm up or not, and since I also wanted to do Castle, I skied it when it was frozen. That choke is steep and narrow and not so much fun when it is icy!

winterfaestarted too early

winterfae

Didn't make the summit, was my first unsuccessful attempt...gotta happen sometime right? My pontiac wasn't about to attempt going all the way, so we had an extra few miles on our hike...started so early that some clouds rolled through that looked questionable and we were off the trail. Of course once we got down it turned out to be an absolutely beautiful day. I'll be back.
