Isn't there usually a Feb. group trip up Quandary or is it earlier in the year... I always seem to miss that one.

There is a yearly winter welcomer on quandry in Oct. However, there may also be a second trip in Feb
To climb is to push yourself in a way you might not normally imagine is possible. If your stamina, skill, and luck are sound you will get to stand on top. ... I realized that with climbing, I'd found something that nourished my soul and could forge me into a better version myself - Jim Davidson

There are annual Quandary group hikes at the end of October (Winter Welcomer) and in early/mid January (January Quandary).

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Is there a thread/schedule already going for the Janaury hike that I've missed? ](*,)
