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!

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 :-)).

Easy day  Sucess!

Never thought I'd be climbing peaks this late in the year. It was a really easy day on Quandary and the views were great. This most likely will wrap up the season.

Over and over  Sucess!

Great training peak and close to home, so climb this one about once every other month. With changing seasons and weather, it never looks quite the same.

Cristo Couloir  Sucess!

Hiked up the snow covered road and camped at the base of the couloir. Snowed on during the night and a little bit windy but cleared off the next day. Snow got mushy later in the day so we climbed on the rock for a bit. Beautiful climb with my dad and a great glissade.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Lots of people on a beautiful day.

Crowded!  Sucess!

One of many climbs, ski descents, etc. This particular day in summer '09 was crowded! Holy Cow! Nice day anyway, very early start had me beat most to the top...

East Slopes  Sucess!

My third 14er in CO. The place was like a zoo, shared the summit with at least 50 people. Great views but not my favorite hike, the downhill was killing my knees.
