Ascent Trip ReportOn September 1, 2001, I hiked Quandary with my wife, Susan. While on the summit, I decided to spice things up a bit. I got the okay to climb down the west ridge to bag Fletcher Mountain. On the way down, I noticed the beautiful cirque surrounding the Monte Cristo Creek (that fills the Blue Lakes below Quandary). Since I was about to finish my 2nd peak in the area, I made a mental note to come back and tag all the remaining summits in the Monte Cristo Creek cirque.
