Found a mountain goat at the very summit. Think he was looking for the ski lift.

...than never. Really guessing about the actual date. Climbed it again in August 1995. My first fourteener in '75, and still my only winter one. My wife's third (I believe) when we climbed together in '95. East ridge route from Montgomery Res. TH the first time, same route from McCullough Gulch the second.

seth@LOKIEast Ridge- The Best Winter Climb  Sucess!

East Ridge Climb is great as it is wind swept and usually safe approach. I have skied this often picking through the rocks in the middle section. The Cristo is good in spring. Seeems like everytime I come back from doing the East Ridge, some idiots die on the Cristo. Don't get me wrong I love BC riding and pow...It's just not worth my life. beacons don't make you safe. Rdges help.

Our group of six had a fun ascent while it snowed hard on the Mountain the first part of May. Two out of six of us summited.

I spent most of the day post holing, which was really frustrating. I got through it and made it to the top. It was a nice and easy ski descent.

Nice trail for somebody like me who is new to fourteeners. Parking situation at Monte Cristo Gulch is really frustrating and the crowds can be overwhelming, but still a nice hike.

My third fourteener and my 11-year-old son's second. We started at 5:40AM and were the second group on the mountain. We reached the peak by 9:00AM and spent 30 minutes on the top, the fourth group up there. On the way down we encountered probably 200 people. We were back to the trailhead a few minutes after noon. It started raining by 1:00PM. I would think a lot of folks got rained on. Like always, start early!

redd0019First 14'er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2006

Started at 6:45am with about 6 other cars in the parking area. The trail is a well beated path up to the talus field, which seems to go on forever. Had a brief spell of rain, which gave way to blue skies. Dark clouds threatened as we approached the summit with about 1,000ft to go, but blew over. Took us three hours to summit, keep in mind we're flatlanders from Minnesota. There was no snow to speak of on the East Slopes Trail, very windy and chilly up on top, stopped for about 20 minutes before heading back down. The wildflowers seemed to be in full bloom and we had great views on the way down. Total time up and down was 6 hours, which included a few stops and photo ops. Beta available online at the Arapahoe National Forest ranger station in Dillon, CO, on Hwy. 6 in Silverthorne and also online at their web site. Happy Trails.

Another great 14'er hike in God's country! The weather was a bit cloudy and cool (45-50 degrees) for a 7:30 AM start. The trail up was straight forward through the trees to above tree line and my first overall view of Quandary. There weren't too many people ahead of me (fortunately) - it took about 2 hours to summit and shared the summit with 5 people and 1 dog. After 45 minutes on top enjoying the low cloud formations and viewing the people train nearing the summit, I decided to start down. Still amazes me to see people not too prepared for the mountains - jeans, cotton t-shirts, little food/water, etc. Trip down was uneventful other than watching the building clouds for a storm that never materialized. Another great hike - back to the mountains after 4th of July!

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2006
Extremely busy, I think we passed a crew of 30 people all at once at one point during the hike. Pretty enjoyable and some nice scenery, but all of the loose rock got annoying after a while (seemed like there was more of this than other fourteeners I've done so far).

Got up over 13,000 and was nailed by very bad lightning, snow, and hail storm. Lots of post holing on way down, knew I should've taken the snow shoes.

Snowshoed up with a friend on a perfect winter day. It must've been 40 degrees at the summit, but without a trace of wind. It felt warmer than it typically does on a summer day, but maybe that's just from having on winter clothes.

Cold and drizzle all the way up and down. No view to speak of. We passed a 75 year old man and his 50ish son near the top. I hope I'm still going at that age!
