TMNice day
Date Climbed: Mar 17, 2006


Climbed the East Ridge with a friend in nice conditions. Ran into another skier/climber, making his first winter 14er climb. Still waiting for the pictures Alan! We all summitted together before the weather started to turn. Snow was solid windblown along the ridge, made for good cramponing. NIce views, including Lincoln which we climbed the next day.

Climbed the christo couloir after spending the night out at the dam below. A nice overnight loop on this mountain. And yes, I saw people the next day coming up.

I broke my arm on September 12. I tripped while jogging back down the Flattop trail after climbing Hallet, Otis, Flattop, and Ptarmigan Point in Rocky Mountain National Park. But since we were in Breckenridge I couldn't resist going up Quandary.I went solo, but of course I was not totally by myself since I saw others on the ridge to the summit. However, because of the wind I had a jacket on and most of the people I met did not realize I had a broken arm. When I reached the summit I couldn't resist pulling my sleeve back so that the cast would be obvious in my summit photo. The fall colors were fading and a storm was moving in, but it was still a great day to be in the mountains.

Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2006


Summited around 12:00, the wind was blowing and the thermometer was dropping so we didn't stick around too long on the summit. Lucked out on visibility though!

There was a small snowfield just below the summit and no shortage of wind on top.

Lots of snow down low. Beautiful day with a few high clouds. Great glissades on east ridge on descent.

sshankleWinter Solo - East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 13, 2006


My first 14'er. Good winter climb. I got lost after the ascent (missed the ridge) and after a couple hours of hair-raising traverses of avy teritory and postholing I made it back to the road NE of the ridge that I missed.

Good cramponing after an early start. Only other party on the mtn was a 10th Mtn Div. training group.

See my trip report with a couple pics.

Tried this peak for the first time in February but had to turn around due to the wind. Successful in July. There was still alot of snow and the wind was blowing pretty hard. A cold day.

I'm happy to have saved this one for winter. Only 10 other people on the trail that we met rather than the trail of ants in the summer. It was a bit chilly with some blustery wind gusts that make but otherwise a beautiful day. Crampons would have been much faster at the top, but snowshoes were servicable.

My first fourteener! WOOHOO! Hauled a bottle of champagne all the way ... popped the cork on the summit! (That cork now has a place of honor on a shelf in my office :-)

Very high winds made this a tough, cold day. Powder in the trees made the trail invisible. Stick to the ridge and you can't miss. Just keep your distance from the cornice. This was my 7 summit of Quandry.

Went up the easy East Ridge to Quandary's summit. Had the summit to ourselves. Ran into many people on our descent.

I may not have the month (or year) right, but the snowfall was pretty light that year. My first 3rd class-type 14er.
