Colorado, colorado  Sucess!

Real straightforward hike. Banged this one out in about four hours. Great views!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Camped at the TH and climbed the East Ridge. It was a record snow year in CO and 3-4" of fresh snow fell while we were there. Conditions were good though and we shoed up the whole way. It was a beautiful hike through the woods but unfortuately the visibility was poor on the upper ridge.

Fun Ski  Sucess!

We enjoyed an early morning skin in wintry conditions and skied down the east ridge of Quandary. We were hoping to ski the Cristo Couloir but visibility was down to 100 feet by the time we hit the summit.

Extra batteries next time  Sucess!

Beautiful day perfect hike. A large gathering of mountain sheep at 10,000 feet and my camera had a dead battery!

55mph winds made this climb chilly  Sucess!

Good boot pack and a well defined route made this climb fun. The wind made it a bit cold (-30 or so wind chill), but overall it was a good day on Quandary.

Standard East Ridge in Winter  Sucess!

Pretty clear day with moderate winter temps. Would much rather climb the west ridge, or some of the colior routes on the south face in the future.

Winter Ascent  Sucess!

Did this one in snowshoes and came down in very deep powder on an off-trail route back to the car -meaning I lost the trail at the bottom. =)

This was a very straightforward winter climb however I began it already feeling a bit flu-ish. By the time I was less than 75 ft from the summit, I was having an extreme stomach flu and fever and needed to flee the mountain quickly. It lasted for days so I didn't have the chance for a quick rematch. I will this February though. :)

East Ridge - Winter  Sucess!

Nice day out with the wife. Started in the clouds and cold while later breaking out into sun. Was a little surprised at the steepness on the ridge in places.

Nice way to revisit Quandary after the West Ridge. Lot's of folks out but a great day overall.

First 14er!  Sucess!

A great first summit - quite cold and windy (don't know what I expected in November..), definitely won't be my last...

confusion on quandary

Went looking for the West Ridge in a blizzard. Got off route and found a few icy gullies that eventually dead ended. Settled for Cristo Couloir. Was a fun day!

Leah's first 14er  Sucess!

Looking back now, I wish I'd have chosen a more exciting 14er to take Leah on for her first one.

Birthday Climb  Sucess!

Wife's first time up to 14k, and first summit!

Got to meet Horton the Quandary dog... http://climbing.about.com/b/2008/09/12/horton-the-quandary-dog.htm

Cold and windy East Ridge  Sucess!

Birthday hike :). I wasn't moving very fast since I flew in from OC the previous day. Clouds were threatening all day and the last 1000 feet had very low visibility and high winds (60mph). I actually turned around right before the summit since the wind became unbearable and there was zero visibility. Close enough though, so I'll consider it successful :-)).
