Castle Peak (14,265 feet) is supposed to be one of the easier "fourteeners" in Colorado.  While not technically difficult, I was surprised at the exposure on the summit ridge - in many places, nothing but hundreds of feet of empty air separate one from the valley below to either side of the trail.  I climbed with extreme caution and made it safely to the summit shortly before sunset.
