Well, as an "old guy" who has been working on fourteeners for 30 years, and with only one winter climb, I can only drool--and wish somebody had started me on this path before I was 26, which is when I actually did start. Good goin'.
I have been to the mountaintop, and I have seen the force
and the power that animates the universe. That may not
match up with your anthropomorphic or teleological idea of
what "god" is, but it's good enough for me.

You made a good choice, considering it's still closed. . . :wink:

Anyway, congrats to the both of you.

Actually it's a plastic trophy. :D

Belated congratulations for finishing. Just in time, since it's now winter conditions; Pyramid would be much tougher at this point!

I've heard the organization that sponsers the registries on the summits send you a plaque upon completion of all the mountains they consider fourteeners....is this true??


The organization you're thinking of is the Colorado Mountain Club. At most if you are a CMC member (and even if you aren't?) they will add your name to the list of reported finishers. The people that reported completing the 14ers each year are printed in an issue of the Trail&Timberline magazine that members receive.

Basically completing the 14ers is a personal achievement. There's no glory, plaque, or trophy at the end.

yes

Postby Lyssah » Wed Oct 25, 2006 3:05 pm

Yes I realize that. However there was a rumor that the few people who completed this monumental task were honored in some way above and beyond their own personal satisfaction. Now I know this to be false. Thankyou for your clarification.

CONGRATULATIONS to both of you, Jcwhite and SarahT! Awesome job.

To add, you both contribute immensely to this site, and I just wanted you to know that it's appreciated. And I'm sure I speak for many when I say that.

Be sure to savor the accomplishment that very few experience ... and then climb on, climbers!

-Aubrey

p.s., I also hope to be in your shoes -- er, boots -- one day.

Way to go!!! Glad to hear you accomplished your goal this year.


I must echo the sentiments of JHass below though at first I didn't wish to vocalize it. As a Father myself, I can promise you that your father is proud, and drifting through all the memories of times and summits that he shared with you and smiling.
