January Quandary IV

Postby Alby426 » Tue Nov 30, 2010 6:03 pm

OK, here we go again, for the 4th year in a row: Let's go up Quandary in January!!!! \:D/
The last two years were on fantastic days with many of you guys (over 80 in 2009 and over 40 last year).

This year, I was planning on going Saturday, January 15th of 2011 Weather permitting.

I will contact the weather gods and try to convince them to give us a good day!

I may even go up there the evening before and camp out.

So, who is interested?

Last year we had awesome weather. I hope that the weather on the 15th is just as great. I will be spending 5 days on a caving expedition just before this trip, so I'll be ready for some high altitude, above ground fun! :D

I did this mountain on January 31, 2009 and it was great fun. I'm putting it down on the calendar!

Can't wait for January Quandry-'Frank' has told me alot about the trip last time and i can't wait to do it! It looks like a lot of fun. Camping at the tril head or somewhere closeby (or on the mountain) would be alot of fun aswell. Can't Wait :!: :D

I'd love to return to the west ridge and try it in true winter (weather permitting). Taking Monte Cristo creek (not to be confused with Cristo Couloir) for a longer approach to the ridge seems like a much safer route for avy-danger than the standard basin. I'm not well versed in avy danger yet, but plan to take a level 1 soon. Do any more experienced folks have thoughts on the safety of a west ridge attempt?
