Nice views on the summit. Not long after summiting we heard thunder over towards Bross and Lincoln. Never saw any lightning on the way down but heard thunder a lot.

FlattlanderWhiteout!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 21, 2011


East Ridge. Easy route, tough conditions. Swirling gusts, whiteout, deep snow, disappearing tracks, so fun. GPS came in handy.

Ruddy94My first one ever!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011


I unsuccessfully tried climbing Mt. Massive, another Colorado 14er, almost 2 years ago. The hike had to be abandoned due to inclement weather. After that I never gave hiking a 14er another thought, until a few weeks ago. A buddy of mine suggested we do Quandary together, I happily obliged as summiting a 14er has been on my "to do list" now for the past few years. Had a great climb, and the weather prevailed. No real issues, other than the socks I wore started rubbing my heel raw during the descent. 3 days later it's all I can think about and now want to climb another one this weekend. I was thinking Bierstadt.

colinpenceseveral successful climbs  Sucess!


The east ridge is always long and crowded, so you may want to try the west ridge for variety. The route is rocky and loose but was fun scrambling.

voxnihiliBeautiful   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2011


A beautiful hike. Had the trail to myself on the way up, not so much on the way down. Unfortunately, the summit had no visibility and very high winds when I was on top but still a great morning.

WarsteinerGreat Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2011


Goats everywhere and we even saw a band of intrepid adventurers who had just destroyed "The Ring" at the top of "Mt. Doom". The weather was clear all day and afternoon so t-shirts and pants were comfortable. Stopped in town at La Montana Linda for a post-climb mexican binge.

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.

LivingColoradoFun with Goats  Sucess!
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!

bblack99Number 8!  Sucess!
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.
