SurfNTurf and Gregory_Fischer Finish the 14ers!

Postby MountainMedic » Sat Sep 15, 2012 7:32 pm

For those of you who don't already know (seems like half of this site was on Sneffels today), Greg Fischer and Jeff Golden finished the 58 CO 14ers today on Mt. Sneffels in style, with a keg and 20 other climbers in attendance. They dedicated their climb - the Rob Jansen Memorial Finisher - to RJansen77, a very close friend who was killed on Hagerman Peak in August. Rob, who would have been finishing with the three of us today, would have been proud. Not only are Greg and Jeff great climbers, they're great friends. Congratulations!

Some Highlights (I'm sure I'm forgetting something)
Jeff Golden: 17 winter summits, Bells Traverse, an absurd number of snow climbs, Rainier unguided. For some reason climbed Quandary 4 times. More importantly, probably the most articulate person on this forum.
Greg Fischer: 4 Grand Traverses, 71/73 points over 14k, 40 14ers since March, Rainier unguided. REI garage sale master. Probably saved my life on Hagerman Peak.

I waited at the summit for 3-4 hours and monitored their progress from above. And took pictures of the countless unaffiliated groups that came before them. They summited in style. I was surprised at the amount of awesome stuff they brought. They hauled everything (keg and lunch) up the class 3 sw ridge. I was impressed. Congrats to both Jeff and Greg!!! On a more somber note, my heart still goes out to them and was definitely bittersweet. God blesss those guys. RC clear.

Oh really? Those guys are the 14ers.com gurus, I figured they finished years ago.

Either way, congrats on finishing Greg and Jeff!
