Doubles that don't require driving, in ascending order of difficulty IMO. Hard to objectify endurance vs. technical aspect though. All assume a start from standard TH.
Any two of the Decalibron
Threefers in ascending order of difficulty
The Decalibron (Cameron shouldn't count)
any string of three of Belford/Oxford/Harvard/Columbia/Yale
The list can go on and on but not sure there's a point to it.
FAQ and threads for those just starting to hike the Colorado 14ers.

Andrew, when you ask why we never climb mountains together, this is why.
Damn, I gotta get in shape after the wedding. Like real shape, not my current apple shape. My physique is good for goaltending, but not so much for sustained cardio.
Then I'll be ready for a CU Hockey reunion on a mountaintop!
consistent running and/or insanity workouts helped me. in much better shape now than i was in my college drinking days

I want to do this for my 50th birthday next summer. The campground is right between the two trailheads. I was going to do this a few years ago - made great time up and down Massive... went back to the camp to restock our food and water but my hiking partner was really hurting, so we only bagged Massive that day.
