Yes, but I told my wife I'd be skiing, so please don't tell her I'm on a 14er again.

I know, that one was a blast.
Someone will post something. That's usually all it takes to get the 14ers wrecking crew out for a party. :lol:


Thanks again to all the crazy 14ers characters that made this last event so sweetly memorable.... :wink:



How about a New Years Eve hike?! That would fall on a Saturday this year. New Years Day is out for several obvious reasons.


That would be pretty sweet in my mind (weather permitting of course).

I am so in for this that would make the New Years evening celebration that much more rewarding . . . and the horrible hangover the following day that much more tolerable.

That sounds good to me. Tentively I am in. What peak? Kind of need something in fairly close proximaty to Denver, want to be able to get back in time for my hangover warmups. A 13er anyone or a 12er. Perhaps something that has good ski routes down.
The spaces between is where I reside, In the moment is where I live, and my family and friends are who I love.

A New Year's Eve hike would be worth driving down from Cheyenne for!

Yeah, I would definitely be up for a 13er close to Denver that we could potentially skin up & ski down.

Bierstadt (depending on closures)? North Star? Cupid/Sniktau/Grizzly?

Yes, I'm being purely selfish with these suggestions. But these would be accessible to just about anyone.

We could be lame and do Sherman. (Barfing noises.)

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

New Year's Eve on North Star would be fun. I could go for that.

I would prefer to stick to a 14er personally. Either way unless there is some potential blizzard im in for New Years Eve . . . . . and possibly some suggestions on places to go for an after party. \:D/

I'm hoping to get Evans this winter, so I'd probably be up for it on NYE...


Other easier ones I'm looking at this winter include Antero, Belford, Oxford, Ellingwood, and Lindsey.
Longs north face would be nuts for a group effort but could make a fun summit for NYE if conditions permitted. Heck, we could even fix a rope or two.

And then, I've always wondered about taking the Adaman track up Pikes on NYE, watching the fireworks from up there, and coming down in the moonlight.


Should have a half moon in the sky on NYE...
