JANUARY QUANDARY VI

Postby Alby426 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 8:03 pm

Time to consider our January outing on Quandary Peak. The past 5 years have been a great success and I am hoping to make this even better.

I suggest SATURDAY 19th of January as the date to go up to the wonderful top of Quandary. (Dependent on weather )

This is a great opportunity for all those of you that wanted to try summeting a 14er in Winter or for an opportunity to meet new friends.

The basic things to know about this ascent is that the peak is one of the safest for Winter.
Remember to dress up in layers, have equipment to protect every inch of skin.
Bring Snowshoes, bottle water in your pack and a camera.

Hope to see many of you up there!

That day works great for me--count me in!

Perfect. Makes it easier for the out of staters with MLK that weekend. +2 or 3 from Texas.

I'd love to but I'll only be in Breck from 13th-18th and was considering a go at it during the week...

We missed the Winter Welcomer.
Hopefully we'll make it this time!

Sweet! There's still plenty of time for me to come up with excuses on why I can't make it. Again.

May be a good New Year's resolution.

Last year was a blast. I'll plan on coming again this year, with a +1.

Dang. Same time as the Summitpost gathering:

Some people already have plane tickets, so I can't change the date. :(
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.
