East Ridge  Sucess!

I really wanted to try the west ridge but decided not to since I was solo. Ran into a small family of mountain goats on the way up. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked the East Ridge. Very cold and windy. Only stayed on top for a few minutes. Coldest day I have had in the mountains

Winter storm on Quandary  Sucess!

A cold/awesome/windy adventure in the middle of winter at 14,000 ft! very fun, and surprisingly we weren't the only party on the mountain. the winds at the summit must have been at least 80 mph.

5th 14er on the day  Sucess!

We decided to do Quandary after doing Democrat, Lincoln, Cameron and Bross. We started late for that combo so we started Quandary at 4:00pm. We made it down by 8pm. Lots of mountain goats and great views. Almost everyone was off the mountain so it was kinda nice to have a 14er to yourself

Quandary Trail  Sucess!

I led this trip with 4 other hikers through meetup.com. The place was a madhouse. We arrived at the trailhead just after 6AM, and there were already a whole bunch of cars parked along McCullough Gulch Road, and more coming in behind us. We reached the summit around 8:45 and there was a good sized crowd up there. There is still some snow up on the summit ridge. Weather was great, a little windy up top, but it was sunny, with great views. When we got back down to Point 13146, we could see a great big conga line of people headed up to the summit. We saw a couple of mountain goats hanging around the trail on the way down. A great day all in all.

Winter is the best  Sucess!

Short climb only about four hours but very cold and windy. Could only see about ten feet in front of me the entire way. Went with a friend but we both were out of each others site for most of the climb. thank god for GPS.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Nice, easy hike. Spectacular view. Wish I had my dog along--she would have loved it!

Close but no cigar!

Came to within a hundred feet of the summit via the standard eastern ridge. The wind was oppressive and limited visibility to approximately 20 or 30 feet. Very worth while though as it proved extremely gratifying have made it as far as we did!
