|Peak:||Castle Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||06/17/2012|
For Father's Day my Children thought that we should climb Castle Peak and who was I to disagree. The 4-wheel drive road is clear and mostly dry all the way to the Pearl Pass junction. The lower river crossing is in good shape without very much water. We parked at the junction and started hiking. The Road is dry all the way to the end. The permanent snowfields are very small and were easy to climb even without any special gear although an ice axe would have allowed for a fun glissade down. From this point on the route was clear and dry. The hike made for a great Fathersí Day.
