Castle Peak

We hiked Castle Peak on Saturday. It wasn’t our best 14er attempt…in short we went 2.25 miles out of our way, adding almost an hour and a half to our trip. Combine that with lots of steep climbing and slushy snow and you get two grumpy Sheahans.

For more, here’s the trip report: http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/tripreport.php?trip=10645.

There was some good about our trip, too. The glissading was awesome. It made the descent super quick, and we had a blast. It was super fun playing in the snow in August! We slid down the snow on our butts for probably 2,000 feet of elevation loss. =)

A pic of us on the way up, so you can get perspective on the steepness:

See those two, tiny dots at the end of the snow tracks? Those are people…again, giving perspective on the steep factor.
