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.

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

First winter ascent  Sucess!

Did my first winter 14er ascent. Also wasn't acclimatized which turned it into an epic adventure. To warm to glissade :(

Quandary Trail  Sucess!

CMC hike. This was my 5th time on The Q. It started out chilly, with flurries, but then the sun came out and it warmed up considerably. There was plenty of snow, and quite a few hikers on the mountain for early February. It took us about 5.5 hours, up and down. It was a pretty tough hike, but successful on a glorious day.

East ridge, ski descent  Sucess!

Snowshoed up, snowboarded down...wish I wouldve gone on a colder day...so much frustration in the soft snow at the bottom of the mountain. Still fun, nonetheles, was up and down in town to get a burger and beer in breck.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Ran up the east ridge before an afternoon shift. Saw a total of 7 goats, including some youngsters.

Great day!  Sucess!

Could not have asked for better conditions this time of year! Great temps, very little wind.

Quandary with Company!  Sucess!

Made a winter ascent in decent weather but high winds only to find company on the summit - a herd of mountain goats with two kids! I kept a safe distance, eventually retreating and leaving the summit to them, as they did not seem skittish of me at all. The climb was longer than I expected but manageable. Heard one avalanche on the North side but didn't see/experience any avi terrain on our route up the East Ridge. The climb took about 5 hours from car to summit and about 2 to return, so 7 total. All in all, a great day with incredible views!
