Quandary Peak

Adventurers: Michael & Yank
Category: Ski Mountaineering

Start: Breckenridge, Colorado
   
Winter Trailhead: Leaving Breck head south on Colorodo 9 for about 8 miles. Turn right onto Blue Lakes Road (County Rd 850). After a couple hundred feet turn right again into the parking lot before passing the intersection of McCullough Gulch Road (Country Rd 851) which will be buried in snow during the winter months

Max Elevation: 14,265 feet

Duration: 7 hours (including exploring the gulch)
