Incredible! Makes finishing the 14ers look lame in comparison. :D =D>

Just wondering, do you have robotic knees?

WELL DONE! =D> Way to stick to that MONSTER list until completion. I probably would've given up halfway through. Must be an incredible feeling ... because it is one hell of an accomplishment.

CONGRATULATIONS!

The more 13ers I climb, the more impressive finishing this list is! Heartfelt kudos from a fellow 13er list junkie, Steve! I've seen your name on many obscure 13er registers. I think you said you were working on the named unranked 13ers as well. How much do you have left on that list?

That is amazing. I would love to someday be able to achieve something that great in the mountains.
Just out of curiosity, how many of them are class 5.1 or above? How about 5.5 or above?

I second all that. Until I realized he's climbed all the CO 13ers, I'd feel even more satisfied with my taste in peaks if I saw his name in the register.

Thanks for the nice messages! Here are a few self-serving, boastful comments.
