bdizzEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2007


Hiked the east ridge before the first big snow of the year. Great climb, but very short.

Date Climbed: Mar 5, 2008


Skinned up to the long flat portion of the ridge, realized that I'm more of a mountaineer than a backcountry skier, and promptly cached my skis and climbed to the top. I definitely preferred postholing straight down versus carving turns (which my brother was happily doing with the "Quandray Dog" snapping at his heels the whole way down.) Great time overall (despite crappy weather) for my first Colorado 14er!

Skinned up the East ridge under clear and windless skies. Skied the standard East ridge down, only booted a short section on the flat ridge due to rocks. Good coverage top to bottom, snow was windpacked up high and sticky sunbaked powder below.

chicagotransplantEast Ride Summit Ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2008


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!

Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2007


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.

Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2008


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.

Date Climbed: Nov 13, 2007


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.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007


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!!!
