Skied from the summit to the car with one patch of rocks I had to walk around 12,500 or so. Very windy day, but the wind did help deposit some soft snow along the ridge for some good turns!

summited via the standard east ridge route. Some maps designate 2 trailheads. The lower of the two is marked and on this day was lined with vehicles. The upper TH is not marked, but on this day there was only 1 other car so we started out from there. I counted 40 heads on the summit. Someone should open a concession stand up there.

I've climbed Quandary a few times, but my best experience was on the Inwood Arete. This route offers an interesting alternate way to get to the summit. Also, did a December ascent on snowshoes in 1998.

This was my 27th climb of Quandary. I wore snowshoes for the round trip. The snow was firm on the way up, and became spring soft on the way down. It was sunny with a SW wind.

This was the first of many climbs of Quandary. It has become an annual tradition to glissade down the Cristo couloir. On May 27, 01 I got married on top of Quandary and then the wedding party glissaded down.

1st 14er. Went well, except was super windy. I think I need to gain some weight (and I am not a petite girl), b/c the wind kept pushing me around.

Earliest I have ever hiked a 14er. There was still quite a bit of snow on the summit. We were afraid we'd be posthollng through the snow but it was still firm enough that wasn't really a problem. Sure made it fun coming down. Just sit down and away you go!!!

It was a hot, sunny day. At the summit people were quite comfortable just in shorts and t-shirts. Beautiful panoramic views. Ran out of water on the way down because it was so hot. Now I carry much more water than I think necessary because running out of water, even for a short time, is no fun.

Boriss AndeanRoute Climbed: East Ridge - Winter.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 12, 2003

Boriss Andean

Kelly and I started hiking up on compacted snow. The day was cloudy and windless.

Kelly got AMS just 20 minutes below the summit. So she started heading down while I ran up to the summit. Spent two minutes at the top, and I headed back to catch up with Kelly 5 minutes later.

BarbaraAt 59 - my First 14er : "Quandary Peak"  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2007

Tent-camped near the trailhead. 4:30A 44-deg Breakfast...6:20A on the trail, 11:45A Summit. Not bad for 59 and my first 14er! And you wouldn't believe the weather elements we had on the descent at the long ridge after the summit: Thunder/ rain/ hail/dense fog....but it finally all passed overhead. I did this climb with my cousin, 'Slow-but-Steady', who has completed 26 of the 52 CO 14ers. I am hooked forever! Planning our climb for next year!

This was my first fourteener. I was 10 years old, and it got me hooked for the rest of my life. A great first climb, I basically climbed it on a few M&Ms. Good route.

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2007

I understand completely the need to preserve and restore fragil vegetation on heavily travelled 14NRS, but it should be noted that the new sustainable trail on Quandary with it's many rock steps(very impressive construction indeed)is harder on old knees, not to mention that the new trail keeps you high on rock, with no place to bail out, for a long period during storms.
