DescriptionViewed from the lower reaches of the basin formed by Quadrant-Houdini-Pythias-Damon-Gog/Magog Houdini looks like a spectacular, thin spire. Then, "presto/abracadam" it dissapears as you climb up!
From Fairy Meadow, up the trail and to the Quadrant-Houdini col. Thence up easy (Class 3-4?) rock on the north ridge of Houdini to the summit.
The traverse along the ridge can be continued to Mt Pythias and then down it's West Ridge to Friendship Col.
