Congrats Joel! It was cool running into you again in Chicago Basin earlier this year, I am sure we will see each other around.

Thanks everyone for the congrats. A big thanks to Taylor's and cheese burglar for being such great climbing partners and showing me the ropes. The 14ers list took me three and a half years. In order to finish the list this year took many long weekends. Here is the list of 14ers I climbed to finish this summer. Mt. Wilson, El Diente peak, Wilson peak, San Luis peak, Wetterhorn peak, Sneffels, Windom peak, Sunlight peak, Capital peak, North Maroon peak, Crestone peak, Crestone needle, Kit Carson peak, Humbolt, Mt lindsey and Mt. Evans. For those who have not climbed all of the 14ers set your goals high and climb safe.

Congrats! Good weekend for finishers apparently
