rleclair1st Winter Ascent!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 12, 2006


It still amazes me the differences between climbing Quandary in June 2006 and November 2006 - 2 very different "mountains" with regard to conditions! I had the pleasure of hiking with fellow SPers Alan and Patrick on this winter ascent - complete with low temps, gusty winds, occasional whiteouts and sun - mostly wind and snow though! I was beat but enjoyed the experience!

shanrickvFirst winter 14er summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 12, 2006


My first winter 14er summit. Damn was I tired! I remember Quandary being a walk in the park in July 2004. It's amazing what a ton of fresh snow with high winds will do to a mountain and your quads. Had the pleasure of climbing with fellow SPers Alan and Robert.

Somehow, hike seemed easier than Bierstadt even with a hangover from the disc golf tourney (awards ceremony) in Vail the day before. Really enjoyed the creaking stones grinding together underfoot. Great day for it; sunny and cool.

and it was awesome! Nice class 3-4 route to the top, although some false summits and hard route finding make this trip a little more difficult than the average scramble.

Vagabond Manifesto

Due to inexplicably poor decision-making, this was the scariest time in the outdoors that I've ever had. Hiking alone, I'd driven from Denver and didn't start until early afternoon. Descent featured nearly constant and very close lightning, rain, and marble-sized hail.

I knew I was starting too late but did it anyway--not like me at all. Haven't repeated such a stupid decision since. Climbed Democrat the next day, and Cameron, Lincoln and Bross two days later.

El_Capitan2nd attempt of day successful  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2006
I know its a sin but got a late start at the trailhead (10am). Made it to 500 feet of the summit before weather forced me down. After descending a 1000 feet to the end of the east ridge (to the timberline), weather cleared, turned around and summited and had the whole mountain to myself.

Climbed the East Ridge route. Pretty easy, a great first climb. Route was busy, but met some great people - beautiful views from the top!

bjd5578A solo hike...sort of  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2004


My first solo 14er hike - although I was there with 500 of my closest friends. Summit was shrouded in clouds, so I didn't get to savour the view...have to go back to enjoy the view another time.

Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2006


An absolutely beautiful day. No clouds in the sky, not too hot, not too cold. Summitted in 2 hours with big brother. He's a 44 year old who kicks my butt.

CanopyBoySouth Face (east of Cristo Couloir)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2006
Tried an alternative approach to summit along the south face from just east of the lake dam. No existing route so finding the way was a little difficult. We had to tunnel through some shrubs along the lower portion of the climb, and on the upper portions of the mountain the loose rock was pretty treacherous. Fun climb despite having to walk all the way around the mountain on the descent.

It was very crowded on the east ridge. We ascended into the clouds and has almost no view from the summit. This was my brother's first 14er. Pretty easy, but still very fun.

odysseusWarm-up from Monte Cristo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2006


Arrived in Denver Saturday morning. Went up Quandry (2nd successful summit) with Mountain Girl Sunday AM for acclimation in preperation for Sawatch climbs later in the week. The trail was like a city sidewalk with all the hikers! Encountered 3 seperate herds of mountain goats on the way down - the most I have ever seen on a 14er.

Should have gone up the ridge. Try again with snow. Lots and lots of people but an early start will make a difference. A great day surrounded by fog and mist but when the clouds broke... cool stuff.

ChaddBraggNot the Easiest  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2006
Nice hike on a really nice day. Would ahve to disagree with people that say this is the easiest 14er. I think Sherman and Bierstadt are both easier.
