Conundrum Coulior  Sucess!

Snow is going fast, but got in a good snow climb up the couloir. Cornice still at the top, but posed no problem. Some rocks and mud cutting late in the day were more worrisome, as was softening snow.

via "Conundrum Couloir"  Sucess!

This is an awesome snow climb and highly recommended! Incredible views of Castle on the way up. Once on top it's an easy scramble over to Castle. Start early and go right of the cornice.

Conundrum Couloir  Sucess!

Great snow climb up the couloir. A big storm chased us off , preventing plans to traverse to Castle.

Copied myrone's trip  Sucess!

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!

Conundrum Peak via Montezuma Mine Rd.  Sucess!

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!

With Castle  Sucess!

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.

3 Times  Sucess!

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.

with Castle  Sucess!

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

Route Climbed: South Ridge  Sucess!

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!

South Ridge  Sucess!

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

Traverse from Castle  Sucess!

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