Details

Drive up to 11,200' to the 4WD trailhead to begin our hike, if possible.  We may have to park lower which will make the trip longer with more elevation gain.



Castle Peak, standard NE ridge route per 14ers:  https://www.14ers.com/route.php?route=cast1&peak=Castle+Peak+and+Conundrum+Peak​



Conundrum Peak from Castle Peak per 14ers:  https://www.14ers.com/route.php?route=cast4&peak=Castle+Peak+and+Conundrum+Peak​



We will come back to the saddle between the peaks and head down or possibly head back over Castle Peak, conditions will warrant our return.



Microspikes and ice axe required.  Snowshoes may be necessary on the approach until  we reach the ridge.  Moderate pace of about 2.5 mph average.



A detailed trip plan and weather forecast will be sent out the week of the trip.  Avi danger minimal as long as we stay on route.
