Icy  Sucess!

I forget the exact date. The final stretch to the summit was a solid sheet of ice covered with a foot of powder snow.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked the east ridge before the first big snow of the year. Great climb, but very short.

Not the skier I thought I was  Sucess!

Skinned up to the long flat portion of the ridge, realized that I'm more of a mountaineer than a backcountry skier, and promptly cached my skis and climbed to the top. I definitely preferred postholing straight down versus carving turns (which my brother was happily doing with the "Quandray Dog" snapping at his heels the whole way down.) Great time overall (despite crappy weather) for my first Colorado 14er!

Quandary Ski Decent  Sucess!

Climbed and skied the East ridge of Quandary March 12. Conditions were hard windpacked sastrugi up high and frozen slushy snow down lower. Conditions may have changed as weather was blowing in.

East Ridge Ski  Sucess!

Skinned up the East ridge under clear and windless skies. Skied the standard East ridge down, only booted a short section on the flat ridge due to rocks. Good coverage top to bottom, snow was windpacked up high and sticky sunbaked powder below.

East Ride Summit Ski  Sucess!

Skied from the summit to the car with one patch of rocks I had to walk around 12,500 or so. Very windy day, but the wind did help deposit some soft snow along the ridge for some good turns!

Quandary refreshments  Sucess!

summited via the standard east ridge route. Some maps designate 2 trailheads. The lower of the two is marked and on this day was lined with vehicles. The upper TH is not marked, but on this day there was only 1 other car so we started out from there. I counted 40 heads on the summit. Someone should open a concession stand up there.

27  Sucess!

This was my 27th climb of Quandary. I wore snowshoes for the round trip. The snow was firm on the way up, and became spring soft on the way down. It was sunny with a SW wind.

Quandary Peak  Sucess!

This was the first of many climbs of Quandary. It has become an annual tradition to glissade down the Cristo couloir. On May 27, 01 I got married on top of Quandary and then the wedding party glissaded down.

1st 14er  Sucess!

1st 14er. Went well, except was super windy. I think I need to gain some weight (and I am not a petite girl), b/c the wind kept pushing me around.
