2 hours to summit from dam trailhead. Routefinding required as route switches sides of ridge a couple of times. Traversed to Fletcher after.

My 3rd time on Quandary. The west ridge, though brief, is so much better than the standard east ridge. Alone all day...until the summit party of course.

Lots of good scrambling on this route, and a great alternative from the standard route.

Enjoyable scramble over and around towers of broken blocks. Patches of ice on the north side made it more interesting. Shocked by the hordes on top that came in from the east ridge. Descended the Cristo Couloir to Blue Lake.

this was a pretty wintery ascent... our mountain hardware expedition tent snapped like a twig while we were trying to set it up the night before (which should never happen!) Whiteout conditions made things interesting at first, but eventually everything mellowed out. on our descent down cristo, we triggered a bit of a slide - but no injuries.

Fun route with some good exposure. Loose in spots so be careful.

This route is in good condition currently. A fun scramble, easy to link up with Fletcher from Blue Lakes.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2009


Far more challenging than the East Route, and definitely less people.

Fun scramble! Not to hard, but some airy spots for sure! although there were about thirty people on top, they did not go the way we did.

Did this the same day as the DeCaLiBron. The scrambling on the ridge is fun but brief. A secluded way to get Quandary.

Really short and awesome moderate class 3-4 climbing. Awesome chimneys and cool summit! I recommend this highly!

Up over Drift Mountain and Fletcher Mountain along the West Ridge and down Quandary's E Ridge. An awesome route climbing three high peaks and I only saw one person until I got to Quandary's summit. The false summits along the West ridgeare a pain in my ass.
