Viewed 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.


Some may wish a short rope here and there, maybe a few slings to sling boulders.

I don't remember much about the descent off of Pythias, but don't recall anything too difficult or exciting.
