Climbed Castle and Conundrum today, via Castle's NE ridge. There is LOTS of snow in Montezuma Basin still, but we were fine in just boots. We occasionally postholed on the way out around noon today. The NE ridge is free of snow until just below Castle's summit. On Conundrum, there is more snow, but nothing that can't be easily bypassed. If you're looking for an epic glissade, go down the saddle between Castle and Conundrum. You won't be disappointed.
