14ers for TM

Postby Alex » Mon May 21, 2007 8:17 pm

I am not sure if this topic has been discussed in the forum, but do we have any list of the summits climbed by fourteeners members for Talus Monkey? I don't mean planned, but actually climbed.

I saw his name registered in Sherman.

What else?

well if you saw his name in a summit register, he's climbed it.
Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

What I think Alex means is that he was wondering if we were going to keep a list of all the people on 14ers.com who climbed in honor of TM and placed his name in the canisters on all 54 this summer.
On my first take-off, I hit second gear and went through the speed limit on a two-lane blacktop highway full of ranch traffic. By the time I went up to third, I was going 75 and the tach was barely above 4000 rpm....
And that's when the Ducati got its second wind. From 4000 to 6000 in third will take you from 75 mph to 95 in two seconds - and after that, Bubba, you still have fourth, fifth, and sixth. Ho, ho.

I believe people are going to start posting tribute climbs on this thread

As for the suymmit register on Sherman bearing the name of the TalusMonkey recently, it was put on the register by Rockymtnhigh69, and you can see it in this trip report of Sherman

Rockymtnhigh69,
Yes, that is exactly what I mean.

Merlin6803, thanks, I saw the registry. And thanks for the appropriate thread link.

TalusMonkey on Shavano

Postby Kilimanjaro1 » Thu Jun 14, 2007 8:25 am

I did not know TalusMonkey and only became aware of his untimely death after returning to this site after a long hiatus. However, it certainly looks like he was a friend to all on this site and was well respected and admired. I climbed Shavano this past Monday and saw his name prominently displayed not on the inside of the summit cannister, but written on the OUTSIDE of the cannister. Certainly a nice tribute there. Are others signing his name to the outside of other summit cannisters?

The tough goal is getting his name on all the state summit registers or at least trail reports to that effect. We've got a state high point list going but we are waiting on many states at the moment.

I'm hoping to pull off Minnesota in July but California, Washington and particularly Alaska will be seriously tough.
