ColoradoBergfexQuandry Meteor Shower Night Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2011


Began in the wee hours of the morning in the shadows of the full moon on the East side. Stopped at treeline and higher alpine areas to watch the Perseid meteor shower, or what we could see, as the bright moon interfered. Occasionally lost the trail on the upper parts of the trail due to darkness. Reached the summit at 6am and watched the sun rise in the sky and warm the windy peak over the course of two hours. Descending in bright light was made more pleasant by the bright colored flowers, goat hair caught in the spruce, and aspen. Overall a picture perfect hike.

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2011
Hiked up the standard east ridge route. May be "easy", but still plenty scenic! There were some mountain goats right on the trail on my way down - got some awesome close-up shots of 'em. Always a great day when above timberline!

Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2011


Took forever to get up the upper east slopes, including about 100 yards of snowfield to cross, but it was a rewarding summit. Sketchy clouds in the distance kicked me into gear and I passed dozens of people on the descent to get to treeline!

I was puffing. Tried to glissade down Cristo Couloir, but the snow was too soft.

Fun climb up the Cristo couloir. No visibility and was snowed on, but snow conditions were prime and the ascent is pretty straight forward.

AlpinistEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2011


Camped at the TH and climbed the East Ridge. It was a record snow year in CO and 3-4" of fresh snow fell while we were there. Conditions were good though and we shoed up the whole way. It was a beautiful hike through the woods but unfortuately the visibility was poor on the upper ridge.

Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2011


We enjoyed an early morning skin in wintry conditions and skied down the east ridge of Quandary. We were hoping to ski the Cristo Couloir but visibility was down to 100 feet by the time we hit the summit.

Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2011


Good boot pack and a well defined route made this climb fun. The wind made it a bit cold (-30 or so wind chill), but overall it was a good day on Quandary.

Pretty clear day with moderate winter temps. Would much rather climb the west ridge, or some of the colior routes on the south face in the future.

Did this one in snowshoes and came down in very deep powder on an off-trail route back to the car -meaning I lost the trail at the bottom. =)

This was a very straightforward winter climb however I began it already feeling a bit flu-ish. By the time I was less than 75 ft from the summit, I was having an extreme stomach flu and fever and needed to flee the mountain quickly. It lasted for days so I didn't have the chance for a quick rematch. I will this February though. :)

Nice day out with the wife. Started in the clouds and cold while later breaking out into sun. Was a little surprised at the steepness on the ridge in places.

Nice way to revisit Quandary after the West Ridge. Lot's of folks out but a great day overall.
