14ers finisher!! Congratulations Greg Newland

Postby EVEREST DREAMS » Fri Jul 12, 2013 11:05 am

We started our trek over ten years ago. It was great to have our friends and family to celebrate with us. All in all 12 of us climbed up the S-ridge and west slopes of Snowmass. Some old friends and some new. We all met and had a joyous time on the summit. The weather and view was tremendous. We had a brief hail storm on the way down but we all got down safe. Thank you to Keith, Joe, Josh, Tim, Corey, Cliff, Robert, Jim, Sean and Mike for celebrating our last 14er. I will climb yours with you when you are there as well. Thank you to my wife for your support and love and understanding how much it means to me to climb. Love you. Keep climbing and be safe. Tom. MOUNTAINS. " One more is never enough"

Tom,

It was a pleasure hiking with you guys! It's always fun joining along with someone on their finisher and this one was double the pleasure with both you and Greg. I think we may have set some sort of record for the most people on the summit of Snowmass! With that couple from Texas, we had 14 all at once! Would love to get a copy of the group summit shot from you as well.

Thanks again,

Congrats to you both!

Mike I will get you the pics no problem. Sorry we went up the s-ridge and I didn't get to talk to you much. Let me know if you need a partner for some climbs. I don't know which ones you have left. It was a great day and good to meet you. I can't stop climbing just because I finished. They always call to me.

If I'm reading this right, it was both yours and Greg's finisher?
If so, congrats to you both. Regardless, congratulations are due!
