Castle and/or Conundrum

Postby hberry » Mon May 02, 2011 1:13 pm

I'm interested in skiing Castle and/or Conundrum this spring - based on previous trip reports it looks like mid-late May through pretty early June are the best time to do this. If anyone is interested please respond and we can get a group going!

I've gotten a few responses here and via PM - it looks like the best dates with either be last weekend of May 28/29 or first weekend of June 4/5. This is of course completely contingent on how the snow sets up.

Obviously if you are interested in doing this you should have appropriate gear (BeaconShovelProbe, Ice Ax, Crampons, etc).

I'll update some more as we get closer to the date.

I've been eying Castle/Conundrum for a couple months now, so this sounds like a good opportunity to get out with some like-minded folks. I can for sure make the June weekend, and will probably be free on the 29th, and could make a late night slog up the road on the 28th if need be.

A friend and I were thinking of doing Castle/ Conundrum from the hot springs on May 21. I was looking on here for any trip reports or ideas on how doable this would be.

Any ideas?

I was reading a trip report on SummitPost today and it sounds like a big bag of suck. I didn't research too much but you can google "Conundrum from Conundrum" or something similar to that and you should find some reports - its supposed to be much more difficult and less enjoyable that the standard approach. I'm sure others have experience on here and can speak to it better than I.

Yeah, I might be in for this. I still want to make it down to the San Juans but this is also high on my priority list. I did Castle last year so Conundrum is on the list. I have that entire weekend off as well. Could leave Friday after work.
