Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing your future endeavors!

Thank-you everyone for your comments - appreciate it greatly! What an amazing journey on the road to be a 14er finisher. Special thanks to my long time climbing partners Alan Arnette and Patrick Vall - we started this journey together in earnest back around 2005 and have seen some phenomenal areas of this beautiful state. You guys are an incredible climbing team and I'm honored to call you gents my friend. I look forward to many more climbs with you guys. Thanks also to my former spouse, Pamela Mongelli, with whom I started this 14er journey on many of the Front Range 14ers with Mt. Bierstadt in 1998. Many long time and new found friends have also joined the trail with me as well - Scott Olmer, Nancy and Patrick Saunders, Peter and Stephanie Konopelski, Andy Westmeyer, Sylwia and Jay Hendrickson and many, many more. My brother, Jim LeClair, joined me on the finisher Handies Peak as well and summited his 2nd 14er only 36 hours after arriving from NC. Thanks bro - love you man. Lastly, thank you to the 14ers.com community from which I received BETA information on climbs/conditions, to Bill Middlebrook for operating an incredible resource, and to the random 14ers.com members/non-members whom I've spoken to on the trail. We all share the same affection for these high peaks - climb on!
