Congrats Mark! Its been a long time coming, and I'm glad to see you reach this milestone! A lot of people finished this past weekend, I wonder how many different peaks had finishers on them? I can think of at least 5 different ones now, quite a weekend 8)

Congratulations, Mark! What a great mountain to finish on (even if it was your nemesis) on a beautiful day. It was nice running into you and meeting you briefly at the creek crossing at the end of the day. Enjoy this success and best wishes for whatever you go after next!

A big congrats! I'm also on the 10 year plan, right now half way on peaks and years. Maybe I can take some inspiration and notes from your game plan!

It's great that you were able to stay focused and reach your goal, way to go!

Wahoo, great job Mark!!! I'm so glad you had much better weather for your finisher, as opposed to a few weeks ago when you were at the home-stretch on Maroon! Great work, and I'm so happy you finished 'em all.

CONGRATULATIONS MARK!

Wow, I didn't realize you still had South Maroon to go! Took me 4 times as well. I was on Pyramid a week ago and thought about you. Hope to hike/climb with you again soon!
