A well-trampled trail made for a fast morning climb. Sadly cold and cloudy on top.
With hiking partner and 40-50 others from 14ers.com. Perfect day!
Winter hike to the top of Quandary via East Ridge Route. Warm weather, sunny skies, great views!
Easy as pie.
First day off fall. There was about three feet of fresh snow. Great climb. Climbed west ridge in september 2010
The west ridge was my very first 14er when I was 12. I've been back several times since for that route and the Cristo Couloir. I've never reached the summit via the east ridge route although I have descended that way and snowshoed most of it.
3rd time up, via standard route. New highest point for month of December and completed goal of climbing at least one fourteener in each calendar month. Sunny but chilly day.
Climbed east ridge with ben "peloboton" good times! Was his first 14'r and my first time up Quandary since Feb 2005

Great weather and views, very little snow!
Part of a 12 fourteeners in 6 days spree.
Nice Hike Beautiful Peak but They All ARE!
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.
Hiked the East Ridge. Very cold and windy. Only stayed on top for a few minutes. Coldest day I have had in the mountains
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.
0900 start with Hootie. Great weather with a little wind on top. Excellent views! Spotted mountain goats on the way down. Easy, straight forward hike.
Did this one solo today. 9th Colorado 14er...10th 14er overall. Great day weather wise...lots and lots of other hikers..too crowded for me. Nice trail..easy 14er.
Ninth peak this week!
Well maintained trail.
