Worth it for the last snow climb of the season? In hindsight, certainly :)

Midway through the talus field on route to the crux. This entire section was unconsolidated making it absolutely exhausting

Yours truly on the summit. Castle and Conundrum are the two tallest peaks in the photo immediately to my left.

Diego begins the downclimb. Snow was rock hard. Crampons and ice axes were a must here.

What would a CO peak be without a healthy dose of willows
