#3  Sucess!

The Cristo Couloir provided one of the best sledding descents of the summer!

Via Cristo Couloir  Sucess!

Started around 5AM. Took 2WD car about half way to the dam. 4WD certainly could have made it almost all the way to the dam. Couloir was kinda dry, but certainly climbable (no skiing for sure). Most of the snow was powder and did not require crampons 90% of the time. Near perfect day otherwise. Descended down east ridge back to car. Traction recommended on ridge. Back at car around 11:30AM.

First Colorado 14er  Sucess!

My final hike during my week in CO, and my first CO 14er. Lots of people, but everyone was friendly. Saw a couple mountain goats and lots of pika. Had nice weather, breezy and cool at the summit. Took just over three hours to summit. Hopefully I can come back to Colorado soon!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Although we were some of the first people on top, the crowds were forming in a major way on our descent. Very crowded and relatively easy 14er. Saw some goats.

Mountain Goats on Quandary  Sucess!

Climbed the standard route up the east ridge from Highway 9. There were several mountain goats up there. September is my favorite climbing month in Colorado and Wyoming. Happy Trails.

East Ridge Route  Sucess!

Started around 8AM. Perfect day. Lots of sun with little wind. Lots of mountain goats to say hi to. Some snow along the route just below the summit. Back at car around 1:30PM.

East Ridge Route  Sucess!

Started around 7AM. Lots of sun and little wind today. Snow was packed all the way to the top. Crampons were nice for the route down, but not necessary. Back at car around 12PM.

Three times  Sucess!

Climbed Quandary 3 times in the late 90s. Once was the standard route in summer, second time was standard route in winter, and third time was by the Inwood Arete.

A Fine Day with 500 Friends!  Sucess!

Quick up and down, although my attempt at a speedy descent was hampered by the parade coming up the trail. Worst crowd I have ever encountered on 14er!

Susan's 1st  Sucess!

From Breck with LeeAnne and Susan. Susan's first 14er. Left trailhead at 0505hrs, summit at 0800hrs. Great weather, beautiful views, and plenty of goats! Broke most of my climbing rules, even held a hand!

Good one!  Sucess!

Nice up and down. A little snow on top and a cool little summit marker. Breckenridge is the imaginary mountain town fairy tales are made from.

Busy East Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful day and great adventure company from a girlfriend, so I cannot complain too much about the masses of humanity encountered up and down. Look forward to getting back sometime to go up a more challenging route. A couple apparently got married on top just as we arrived.

Was my first 14er  Sucess!

This was an awesome first climb! Managed to do it in a couple hours. I remember we didn't bring any proper hiking equipment so my father and I used sticks as trekking poles. Ran into lots of goats - they're pretty friendly. There were at least three or four false peaks on the way up.

Goats  Sucess!

Saw lots of goats on the hike up the standard route, which apparently is an ordinary sight.


buzzdainer - Jul 6, 2015 12:11 pm Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2015

Standard route  Sucess!

Followed the standard route. Beautiful views before the clouds started rolling in. Saw 12-15 mountain goats during my hike.

1st 14er!  Sucess!

This was my first fourteener, I did it just a couple months after moving to Colorado. Very nice peak, if I were to do it again, I would try the class 3 route on the opposite side of the mountain.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun and straightforward climb, even in snow. Weather was perfect, and summit views were excellent. Solo climb only took four hours round trip. Trip Report
