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
Grays/Torreys
Redcloud/Sunshine
Castle/Conundrum
Shavano/Tabeguache
Missouri/Belford
Belford/Oxford
Bierstadt/Evans
Blanca/Ellingwood
Harvard/Columbia
Massive/Elbert
Huron/Missouri
Huron/LaPlata
-------------------------
(scrambling involved)
Eolus/NEolus
Windom/Sunlight
Peak/Needle
Uncompaghre/Wetterhorn
El Diente/MtWilson
Maroon/NMaroon
LB/Blanca
Lindsey/Blanca
Capitol/Snowmass

Threefers in ascending order of difficulty
The Decalibron (Cameron shouldn't count)
Missouri/Belford/Oxford
Redcloud/Sunshine/Handies
any string of three of Belford/Oxford/Harvard/Columbia/Yale
LB/Blanca/Ellingwood
Sunlight/Windom/Eolus
ElDiente/MtWilson/WilsonPeak
Shavano/Tabeguache/Antero
Massive/Elbert/LaPlata
Pyramid/Maroon/NMaroon

The list can go on and on but not sure there's a point to it.

Andrew, when you ask why we never climb mountains together, this is why. :lol:

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! \:D/


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.
