Fun hike up with spouse and other family. Clouds were moving in, so we didn't stay at the top for very long.

Winter climb on snowshoes in perfect weather. A great introduction to easy 14er climbing, with better views than many.

This was my first 14er. I think I am hooked. I now want to try the rest. It was a perfect day. Lightly scattered clouds and no threat of thunder storms. This is a great peak for your first attempt. It is easy enough that you should have no trouble making it up and crowded enough that going alone is no problem.

Quandry was the 1st of 5 fourteeners that my partner and I hiked in 5 days. The new trail is pretty nice, a real walk-up. The final slope to the summit is pretty stiff, though! Beautiful day and a ton of people on the route.

Wonderful all-season climb...excellent snow climb, although the NE bowl can be avalanche-prone.

Great hike for a first 14er...

In my backyard. I have climbed and skied this peak many times. I think the east ridge is one of the best intros to backcountry sking anywhere.

Easy hike with a friend's dog who must have run up and down the entire length of the trail/peak five times.

I have climbed the east slopes route 4 times, once in the early summer with a some skiing on the way down and 3 times in winter. This peak is quite easy and has many hikers on it, however in winter you are lucky to see anyone at all!

Lost the trail due to very dense fog so I decided to go straight up, scrambling over boulders and stuff. Much more exciting than the trail. My first solo climb.

thepluggerRoute Climbed: From Monte Cristo TH, east slope Date Climbed: 06-17-90  Sucess!


This was my first 14er. Jay & I climbed up the east slope and glissaded down the south couloir to the dam. It was also was my ice ax experience after Wilderness Trekking class, and the snow in the couloir had melted considerably. Needless to say, this glissade turned out to be quite exciting (even bordering on terrifying)!!
