Quandary Peak Trip Report (#11733)

Peter, Linda and Ben (12) climbed Mt. Quandary on July 4, 2002. This was the most crowded 14er we have been on, with almost as many dogs as people -- probably because it was the 4th? Be sure and use the new Colorado Fourteeners Initiative trailhead, rather than the old route that is still described in some guides. It is only the beginning of the trail that is different; the new route is a little longer. This is very rocky, a long slog. It is shorter than many 14ers, but less fun than most, too. I'm glad we ticked this one off our list, but probably would not do it again. Be prepared with lots of water, extra clothing.
