Ascent Trip Report

Castle/Conundrum combo. Started at campsite #2, just above the lower/main trailhead. 3 hours, 45 minutes to the top. 2 hours, 45 minutes to the car. 30 minutes from Castle to Conundrum. Total time of 7 hours. With 18/58 down, this combo is probably my 2nd favorite 14er hike, after Longs! Gorgeous views!! “Most Memorable 14er of the Year” Award for 2018 (even though The snowstorm on La Plata is a close second) goes to Castle/Conundrum combo. “Favorite 14er of the Year” Award for 2018 also is awarded to these two.
