We decided to do Quandary after doing Democrat, Lincoln, Cameron and Bross. We started late for that combo so we started Quandary at 4:00pm. We made it down by 8pm. Lots of mountain goats and great views. Almost everyone was off the mountain so it was kinda nice to have a 14er to yourself

I led this trip with 4 other hikers through meetup.com. The place was a madhouse. We arrived at the trailhead just after 6AM, and there were already a whole bunch of cars parked along McCullough Gulch Road, and more coming in behind us. We reached the summit around 8:45 and there was a good sized crowd up there. There is still some snow up on the summit ridge. Weather was great, a little windy up top, but it was sunny, with great views. When we got back down to Point 13146, we could see a great big conga line of people headed up to the summit. We saw a couple of mountain goats hanging around the trail on the way down. A great day all in all.

Short climb only about four hours but very cold and windy. Could only see about ten feet in front of me the entire way. Went with a friend but we both were out of each others site for most of the climb. thank god for GPS.

Came to within a hundred feet of the summit via the standard eastern ridge. The wind was oppressive and limited visibility to approximately 20 or 30 feet. Very worth while though as it proved extremely gratifying have made it as far as we did!

Caught it on a not so busy day last summer, one of the better days on a 14er.

Me and Joe climbed Quandary coulior as a winter ascent. Weather was pretty good, snow was stable in most places. Approach took almost 5 hours--postholing to the waist almost every step. Had some mismangements in hydration--only 1/2 L of H20 car to car in 12 hours for me. Good to know my body functions well under stress and dehydration at altitude, though. No real complaints. Just another great alpine day.

The first half of the climb was fine, but after we got above treeline, conditions horrified, and I found myself almost dying from exhaustion, postholing my way up the East Ridge in whiteout visibility, howling winds, and blowing snow, not to mention the 10+ false summits. I barely made it just before I was going to tell myself to turn around! No views, stayed but two minutes on top, then booked it down. Fun day of suffering!

I was hoping to bring my 9yo son up this peak (for his 2nd 14er), but he overslept after we went to a double-header Rockies game in Denver the day before. I took it very easy on this hike and reached the summit with no problem. By far, the easiest 14er I've ever done. I ran the Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon the next day in 1:25. Glad I didn't overdo it on Quandary the day before. The mood was rather somber on the peak of Quandary... the body of a hiker had been found the day before on this mtn. He had fallen while climbing off the trail on a different route.
