Well done!
People seem to be picking tough ones to finish on this year. This is surely no exception.

It's too bad no one decided to finish on Huron yesterday...
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

There's nothing LITTLE about Little Bear.
Strong finish! Congrats! Enjoy the accomplishment! =D>

Congratulations, SkyPilot! I actually met you up on Mt. Wilson last year, late August. You were up there solo and I thought that was gutsy! :D I was the gal with the red helmet, if that rings any bells.

Congrats! And I completely agree with your statement "Climbing 14ers is a great way to see the State, experience the exhilaration of a true physical test (>54 of them, actually!), and meet wonderful people along the way."
