Conditions basically the same as by unclegar from 6/24/2011. Conundrum couloir in great condition still. Significant sun cupping in the basin. Very warm today (69 F forecasted high on the site) but little/no postholing or need for snowshoes. The Pearl pass road jnct has a sign and is one or two bends in the road after the second bridge over the creek. There is a nice watefall at this bridge.

Hi,thanks for your update.
Have you had a chance to take a look at the west side (conundrum hot springs)? Some of my friends are planning a trip to the hot springs, and are thinking the possibility of climbing the west slope of conundrum or castlebra. Is there much snow on that side?

I didn't get a photo straight down the other side but the view from Castle shows little snow on that side. I can PM you a photo if you like.

Hi jimmtman,
That would be great. Actually we are concerning about the loose scree on the west slopes leading to conundrum or castlebra, so we want to know the snow coverage on the slopes/gullies.
