I still have 19 fourteeners left (counting the 5 "unofficial" ones) but my vote would be for the Crestone Peak to Needle traverse. Both mountains are a blast, and standing on top of the Needle after getting over the crux wall was SUCH an awesome feeling! I'd like to finish on Pyramid, Capitol, or the LB-Blanca traverse though, in the next few years.

As it turns out, I completed that climb with several other 14ers.com members who were finishing as well...and they had beer.

They did have beer...that was a great trip!

Eolus (and North Eolus) was a good one to finish on, especially with the right group of friends.
Climb what you love and love what you climb!!
