While it's possible the OP is a troll, I'll go ahead and throw in. Not as experienced as a lot of people here. But if you don't mind doing a 13er instead of a 14er, check out Matterhorn Peak. Real nice hike in, solitude (not many people do this one), Class 3 scramble at the summit tower that's not too exposed but interesting enough to make you think. Plus, it puts you in proximity to Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn (the latter still on my to-do list). Summit views from Matterhorn are incredible.

Here's a TR from Matterhorn:
Because life's too short to be an indoor cat.
