Quandary Peak East Ridge Tuesday 2013-02-12

Postby vdavidoff » Sat Feb 09, 2013 7:04 pm

I'm planning to attempt Quandary Peak's East Ridge on Tuesday 2013-02-12. It looks like a decent amount of snow is going to be coming through between now and then, but right now the forecast for that day is looking cold, but clear. If the avalanche danger moves up from "considerable" or the weather turns rough I'll postpone, but otherwise I think I'll be out there.

I plan to be on the trail at 6am. It's going to be colder than I have ever hiked in, and I'm not sure how that's going to work out. Also, I have never had to totally break a trail, so if that has to happen (looks likely), that and the potential route finding that'll go along with it will be another new thing I'll be dealing with that day.

Making the summit would be great, but my goal for the day will be to deal with some conditions that are harsher than my usual and see how it goes.

If you'd like to join, let me know.

If my ice plans don't pan out I'm down. Where are you driving from, perhaps we can carpool. Shoot me a pm.

I was planning on going but I don't know if I'll have the funds available as my starter went out so instead of working today I'll be fixing that. I received your pm and thanks for the invite but I don't think its gonna happen.

This totally happened. I almost managed to ruin my life by losing control on the ice on Hoosier Pass...but the hike still totally happened.
