Castle Peak

Castle Peak Trip Report (#14934)

This was my first 14'ner. At the time it was tough, because I just moved to Aspen from New York City. Pretty big change. But Castle started what has become a climbing obsession. She provided me with my first 360 degree view of what mountains look like, and essentially gave me a new life here in the high-country. For this, I am forever grateful. I believe Castle is a great first 14'ner for anyone who wants to get into climbing. I usually will take a novice climbing buddy up here before we progress to anything else. Just to see how they perform and to give them an idea of what mountain climbing entails. This works for me!
