This very LONG overnight will bag you two 14er peaks. You will gradually ascent Conundrum Creek Valley watching as the trees get smaller and the miles tick by. Your campsite will be around Conundrum Hot Springs where you can take a soak and relax your feet after the long approach. In the morning you will head to the opposite side of the valley and follow the track in this guide to ascend both peaks. You will climb a very steep and loose scree slope up to the ridge where you will have access to both peaks. You then will return via the same way with the option of heading back up to the springs or simply returning to the trail down the canyon to shave a mile or so off.
