Our first 14er day in a while Zach and I got so ambitious we took down Shavano, Tabaguache, and Yale all in one day. Needless to say we were completely exhausted and ready to go down!

Great thread, I will play.

Not sure what I am doing, or why I am doing it.

While not the greatest summit shot by traditional standards, the reason this is my worst one is that we aren't actually on the summit. We took this shot thinking we were on top of Columbia, and then started heading for Harvard. After a little while when we started heading uphill again we were pretty bummed out.

Worst? Some might consider these conditions pretty bad, but this was one of my favorite days in the mountains ever.

As stated above... While these are the photos that best fit what has been requested, I think of this as one of my favorite days. Kelso Ridge in January... In a crazy storm. The rope tells you a little something about the wind.

I couldn't see through the snow more than about thirty feet, but I'm surprised my buddy could see AT ALL! Although the ice beard is pretty solid (pun intended).

Here's a series from my first summit of Sunlight. Wet shoes. Wet rock. Not much of a view but what I could get a glimpse of was very cool. I was solo and tried to take a summit shot while sitting on the summit block.

Took more than 3 tries to get a shot showing me AND the summit. :-D

The ones from the front are worse. I thought I was smiling but in the pics I looked like I was utterly miserable. :lol:
