Conditions on Quandary

Postby swm88er » Wed Dec 14, 2011 11:44 am

I am thinking about climbing Quandary on Friday. Does anyone know what the conditions are like up there? Are crampons needed? Would we be able to ski down the east ridge?

Check out this trip report from Silverheels from Sunday. Unless the area has gotten snow since Sunday, this is what conditions will look like. The report shows lots of views of Quandary.
