Quandary Peak Climbing Notes
Kevin Young from UNITED STATES writes:
Over half of the climb to the summit is on an exposed (weather) ridge, especially in winter when staying directly on top of the ridge is necessary to avoid avalanche danger on the South side of the ridge. Be prepared for hiking in high winds and cold temps. Goggles are very helpful if you end up dealing with blowing snow.
<br/>For winter, snowshoes to the ridge and then microspikes on the ridge to the summit make a good combination.
<br/>In the summertime, the long, exposed ridge means you're a long way from safety if a storm/lightning blows in while on the summit. Get up the mountain and back down before afternoon showers.
