with Castle  Sucess!

Hiked 5 miles up the 4wd road, with Castle. Was disheartening to see all the Jeeps driving up and down the roads...while we walked.

Last for next 2 years!  Sucess!

Great trip, fall weather, nice and sunny, warm at the trailhead and freezing above timber line. Golden leaves of Aspens. Great weekend.

Fun link-up  Sucess!

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.

With Castle  Sucess!

Started at about 4:20am and summited Castle 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.

From Castle  Sucess!

The weather held for us, so it was a no-brainer for us to enjoy he little sidewalk in the sky over to Conundrum. Ate some lunch and snapped bomber Elk range photos before backtracking over Castle for the descent. With Cheryl and Jill.

Via Castle  Sucess!

Climbed in conjunction with Castle. 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.

Traverse from Castle  Sucess!

The traverse from Castle was very short (I think only an hour) and the views were fantastic.

Route Climbed: Via Montezuma Basin  Sucess!

This area is much better to climb when it has snow, the remnants of the snowfields are all ice and loose talus rock by this point in the season: not recommended.
