Nice hike up and saw some goats right on the summit! Fun glissading down.

Snow and some wind, but not too cold. Snow-field just above tree line a bit unstable. Skinned to 13000, then walked on rocks sticking out of snow. Descented to 13500 by foot due to low visibility, the rest on skis.

We started out at about 8:00am and reached the trailhead at about 9:00am. The hike started out pretty easy passing a few abandoned mines. At timberline the slope steepened and we slowed down quite a bit. After about a mile the trail flattened out a little and by that time there were four of us left. Looking up at the top we had 1000’ of gain to go and Lisa called it quits. So Mark, Craig and I keep trudging along. Mark was in good shape and kept waiting for Craig and I. The last 1000-foot section was a good climbers trail and was talus all the way to the top so there wasn’t much of a trail, but we could see the summit the whole time. The last 100’ flattened out a bit and then we were at the summit. Mark, Craig and I were very happy and I was relieved. It was Mark and Craig’s first fourteener and only my second.

This was my second ascent of Quandry and was much more enjoyable than the east slopes. The west ridge was challenging from a terrain and route finding perspective. We descended the south slopes - they look like they would be very fun to ski down in the winter. Perhaps a winter trip should be planned (?)

Great climb. My first 14er. Lots of wind and snow. Can't wait to get back.

A great winter climb that started from the Monte Cristo TH. Some may balk at calling this a winter climb, being it's only mid Novmeber; but 20 degree temps, 50mph (no exageration) winds, and enough snow to satisfy the abominable snowman, I'd say it counts!

Photos and video available here.

Heck of a climb. Lots of false summits up with West Ridge. It was a cold day with lots of wind. Didn't stay on top long. Got wicked cramps on the way down from the snowshoes.

After a few troubles finding the new trailhead, we had a great hike. Lots of fun.

Great 4 days of 14ers (9 total). This was my last 14er for the trip. This 14er is close to Breck, which makes for a good choice of a single day excursion.

Was up in the Breck for the weekend, and was bored, so jogged up Quandary. Easy route, great to get out though. Ran into some mountain goats on the descent. I should've checked this page first - the West Ridge sounds a little more interesting.

Nice, smooth and easy going the whole way up. I got started early enough to beat the weather. Started at 8:20 am and reached summit at 10:50 am. It was one of the easier fourteeners.

Seventh of 10 fourteeners in 6 days. #15 overall.

Quandary was my 1st 14er to bag, and man, i must say i'm now addicted! it was an amazing climb! it's a good 14er to climb for your 1st time. it's crazy how fast the storms come in, so always watch the sky. this climb won't leave you disappointed! it's neat to look at the entire eastern ridge of Quandary (from one of the pullouts on the south side of Hoosier Pass) & actually see what you climbed from a different angle!

Very easy, short hike up to a nice peak. Great weather. Took a short trip to check out the west ridge... it doesn't look too bad. Next time!

Fun hike. A little strenuous for me (newbie - 2nd 14er) but we took short breaks whenever we lost our breath and kept plodding along. Views are worth the effort. Played around a bit on the west slope cliffs, but they're still probably a bit out of my league - for now. Not too many folks on the summit and when the clouds moved in everyone split and we had some time alone on the peak. Paid the piper by getting snowed-on on the way down (in August!) but at least it didn't get us wet. Topped off the day with tasty ribs at Breckenridge BBQ in town; highly recommended.

Slept in my pickup at the trail head. Started climbing at sun up. Had an uneventful climb. Except for its length, this is the easest of all.

Beautiful easy hike up the humpback. Snow a foot deep at the summit.

This is a fun short route and the hanging valley with the cabin ruins is one of the most beautiful places I've seen in the mountains.
