Due to a very busy year, this was my first 14er. Great hike, tons of people on the trail due to the holiday weekend, and great weather! Clouds descended about 11AM but cleared away before turning dark.

This is my 2nd attempt at Quandary, the first done Nov 2005 when 60mph winds threatened to turn me into a kite before my friend and I turned back. Not a great day then.

This was the first 14'er I tried in spring snow but had to turn around due to weather. Went back in the summer to summit.

Completed my first solo hike up a Colorado 14er on Quandary. Left the trailhead at 7:10, summited at 9:25, and spent a luxurious 40 minutes on top enjoying the blue skies and beautiful views. The descent took an hour and 45 minutes, so overall, this hike was fun and short- highly recommended for 14er newbies.

Did a night hike to watch the Perseid meteors, summitting between dawn and sunrise. My third time on this peak, and finally got some solitude by hiking under the stars--which were fabulous.

Great starter 14er. Get there early because this route gets packed on the weekends. It was a traffic jam as we were coming down. A number of mountain goats in the area.

I was successful along with 40 other hikers, lots of dogs, some fighting each other, and an array of ham radio operators talking to other hams on other 14ers. East Ridge Route.

First fourteener. Summited with my son, Colin (age 8). What a great experience. I'm so proud of him. He was a real trooper. We met some really great people on our climb. All of them encouraging Colin and congratulating him on the summit. Our summit celebration was cut short when he began to show signs of altitude sickness. He snapped back once we got to the tree line and I even had to ask him to slow down so I could keep up.

Finally enjoyed a PBR on the summit, my fifth attempt! Crazy weather on this mountain, though Saturday's weather was near perfect.

As my 5th repeater on the summer, I enjoyed a pleasant easy sloping hike up the standard route with 7 others. For 3, it was their first 14er. We carried little flags to the summit for an American celebration. A great day in all!

We tackled most of the towers head on, making this a solid class 4 climb. I would recommend this climb to anyone interested in a nice ridge climb.

This was a great introduction to 14ers for two in our group...short, gentle, and great views from the summit!
