Thanks     02/05/2011 00:22
for the comments guys...
Joe, we need to git climbin' again homeboy
Jamies... always a pleasure to climb with you guys. We made a pretty sweet Winter team. Five summits together in the last month of winter?
Sarah, how'd you guys do on Longs? Do you have any pictures from the weekend?
Steve, how've you been? How's Cooper?
Kirk, where you been man?

Throughout these reports you keep saying ‘we‘ broke trail, perhaps being a little humble are you? nice report man


Hey now...     11/30/2010 17:28
I did my fair share. What was it 2? 2 1/2 minutes? of trail breaking. Just kidding. You are correct, Joe. Prakash is humble. AND, he says in the report that Jamie and I have an impressive number of winter summits; but he doesn't mention that he was on most all of those summits with us & one-up-ed us on some trips. It was a great winter; but I am veeery ready for Spring conditions! Thanks for another great report & awesome pictures Prakash. (PS- The singing definitely made the day more enjoyable too.)


Congrats...     03/17/2008 18:20
on a new winter 14er you three! I was very tempted to join, but Dwight was really set on our crazy plan despite the iffy weather forecast and I didn‘t want to let him down. Hope to hike with you guys again soon.


Looked a little cold for that!     03/17/2008 19:38
”We stayed on the summit for quite a while eating, fooling around....... ”

but, like you said, the three of you have alot of experience this winter.

Glad you caught that last little window.

Trench On!


plowing.....plow on     03/17/2008 21:41
prakash, we‘ll let you brake as much trail as you‘d like. if i would have known you‘d be that strong this weekend, i would have stayed in bed friday and let you set the trench saturday!

oh yeah, fun winter. the three of us got 5 fourteeners together? think that‘s right.

sarah- thanks. i‘d love to climb the mountain you were on this weekend in the next two days, but it‘s not to be this winter. atleast i‘ll have a clear number one next year!

steve- who knows what those two were doing. i was warmly bundled up behind a rock shelter plowing through my snacks! it was an annoying cold for the majority of the day. never really cold and never warm enough to feel comfortable.



Impressive yet again...     03/18/2008 01:03
there‘s just something about those damn cold temps that ain‘t my cup of tea. Is it Spring yet?? Looks like another epic climb for you and company. Congrats.

Prakash - our climb of Longs went very well. Took us 9.5 hours to summit but it was a lot of fun. I‘m almost done with the TR and will post it soon along with a link to some pics.


That‘s funny, Sarah...     03/18/2008 15:17 took us 9.5 hours to summit Evans! Congrats! Can‘t wait to see that TR. We took a picture of Longs & Meeker from Evans. We used the zoom, so I‘m pretty sure we can see you guys on top.


lol     11/30/2010 17:28
Sure did feel like 9.5. I still can't believe Evans hwhupped us like that .

Boy, now I want to bunk work and go use Sarah's sweet trench.


just     03/18/2008 15:49

great post     04/03/2008 22:20
