TorstenWFun, But Long...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2005

TorstenW

Climbed from the Hwy 9 trailhead right after the first winter snows. Snow deep in spots. Beautiful... I wish I could stay in that Tenmile range area for a week straight. Just climb from peak to peak, and camp at those gosh darn purdy alpine lakes.

Nice climb up the E ridge, very straightforward. Windy at the top, which is typical.

First 14er solo. Skinned most of the way up the east ridge. Left skis just below summit. Winter snowpack so careful ski descent of the ridge was in order. Very windy day.

Climbed the Cristo Couloir and reached summit at 8:30am. Skied from the summit back down the Cristo. Icy up top (cold wind) but corn down low. Skied all the way to the dam.

Could not have asked for better snow conditions. Started at the trailhead at 5:30am and climbed the Cristo Coulior. Spent about an hour at the summit alone waiting for the snow to soften, then glissaded almost back to my car.

You couldn't have asked for better conditions. The winds were light. It was clear and sunny with temperatures in the mid 30s. This was my first experience with hiking at altitude (living at sea-level has its disadvantages) and in the snow . The combination of the two made for slower progress than I planned. Deciding to stick to my turnaround time I reached 13,534 before heading back down. Even though I didn't summit, the experience was incredible. I can't wait to come back during the summer and complete Quandary.

Almost made it to the summit, but my wife was getting sick. We'll knock it out this summer.

We started this hike in the dark to beat the crowds. We got to watch the sunrise from up high above the treeline. As soon as the sun came up, we heard numerous pikas and watched them come out of their rock crevices. There was also one pika on the very summit. Observing the pikas made my day. The summit was quite long and large with many windshelters.

This is when I decided to finally quit smoking. I made it but it was very hard because of my smoking, I realized my lungs were on it's last leg(?). Very slow going for me, but perseverance paid off. Perfect weather.

Very easy 14ers. The glissade from the summit may be unequaled in Colorado.

Another one for the books with Haliku. Subtle cornices and snow on the summit ridge added some aesthetics to the climb. The views from the summit were very rewarding. Despite the cold temps and wind, it was another great outing.

A good hike to burn off some pecan pie, beautiful winter day. There was some good hardpack that allowed for some nice glissading, speeding up my descent.

rleclair1st Winter Ascent!  Sucess!

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!

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.
