Ascent Trip ReportMy pace was off. I had done 8 fourteeners in June and none in July. Determined to reverse the trend, I set out to climb South Maroon Bell and Castle on July 19-20, 2002.
My original plan was to climb Castle (and Conundrum) as a warm up before climbing my real goal, South Maroon Bell (SMB). However, the weather forecast was looking questionable, so I decided to go for SMB first to give myself a second day to complete the SMB climb if storms chased me off on the first attempt.
