I touched em all this year. I've summarized the experience in a "trip report" that is posted for the 58th peak, North Mt. Eolus.

Dave, it has been an honor to meet you and climb the Wilsons with you this summer! I wish I didn’t find a job so quick and was able to join you in more of your adventures! You are definitely a natural rock climber, a very tough mountaineer, fast hiker, super fun guy and a very crazy Texan!!!
You have earned a very special place in the mountains in Colorado! I hope you will come back to visit our beautiful state and climb more peaks in future. I would love so much to see you again!!! Congrats again on your incredible achievement and please stay in touch!

You are the man. Impressive. I enjoyed our climbs on Maroon, Capitol, and of course Little Bear! So glad you were able to reach your goal.

Just read the trip report, very cool. You had one hell of a summer. Congrats
