3 Centennial finishers on Rio Grande Pyramid

Postby Kevin Baker » Mon Sep 03, 2012 9:42 pm

Congrats are in order to Mike Rodenak (Chicago Transplant),
Kevin Pustulka (Papilion), and Sarah (Wooderson) on completing CO's
100 highest summits with a successful climb of Rio Grande Pyramid!
They topped out at around 9am on Sun, Sept 2. Mike brought up
a delicious brownie cake to celebrate.

Any favorites or memories to share in pursuit of this fine list? Thanks for the invite on a special weekend in the Weminuche. Great one to finish on!

It was really cool seeing all of you up there.

Good times, good brews and of course good popcorn :)

I did RGP the day before. Assuming you all took the standard route from RG Reservoir, we probably crossed paths as I hiked out. Well done.
