Congratulations to wineguy for finishing the 14ers with Little Bear on April 26, 2013!

It was an honor being with you for your last one!

Congratulations! Now how will you spend the summer?!

First one of 2013 (at least that I've heard of). Congrats!

Congratulations on a great finish! You couldn't have picked a harder one to finish on!

I apologize for not recognizing you. You are my hero, this site has saved my life many times. Yes, that was me, I called you an animal when I saw you carrying all the heavy gear up the Lake Como Road.

It was much harder than I expected above the hourglass, I'll post further details in a trip report.

It was a pleasure to climb with you, I couldn't have done it without you.

I was sporting my Look at that idiot with all of that friggin' ski gear disquise :) . My plan was to ski Blanca but after getting all the way to 13,200', it was clear the upper 1,000' was unskiable. Oh well. We hope to go back for LB soon - thanks for the conditions update.

It's great to hear the site has helped you and I wish you many more safe climbs. Congrats again on finishing the list on Little Bear, with snow!
