CONGRATS!!!

That is truly impressive... a buddy of mine just finished the centennials and I was amazed at the effort he had to put in..

Congratulations, Steve! That's an outstanding accomplishment, and puts you in some very (ahem) lofty company!

Way to go Steve! =D>

We were talking about you this weekend as we thought this was when you were planning on your finisher, quite an impressive feat, after that monster trip to the San Juans this summer, it must have felt "relaxing" to finish with Rogers and Warren :D

Very, very impressive. That is quite a list, Lizard Head, Dallas, there are some very tough peaks in the 13er class...

Congratulations, Steve. That's truly amazing. =D> =D> It's hard to even get my mind around how much effort that would take.
So, how many 12ers are there?
I have more age than experience, more experience than knowledge, and more knowledge than wisdom.
Yet somehow I usually make it back to the car safely; and oftentimes, so do the people that I'm with.

Congratulations! What an accomplishment! =D>
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

Very impressive Steve! =D>

It must have required amazing drive to motivate for the obscure humps on that list, a more daunting trait of the accomplishment IMO than motivating for the technical challenges.

Go Steve!!!

Heh, I remember asking you if you had any Sangre 13ers left. What a silly question... How about being the first person to REPEAT all the 13ers?? I don't know if that's been done or not but I'm sure you do.
Never argue with an idiot. They'll take you down to their level and beat you with experience.
