Ascent Trip Report

Left Glenwood Springs 4am, parked and began hiking around 5:30am. Difficult route finding beginning with a steep boulder / talus field. Fun class 2 / class 3 sections near Castle Peak. Continued on to Conundrum Peak and returned up over Castle Peak rather than descent from saddle - very steep and loose rock / rockfalls. Great weather, but very hazy.
