Bill Wood (WildLobo71) & David Jones - FINISHERS!

Postby Fisching » Sun Sep 30, 2012 3:41 pm

Big congratulations to Bill Wood & David Jones on completing the 14ers on Holy Cross yesterday. Despite the atrocious, blue sky, no wind weather, they persevered to finish in style - kilts, scotch, and lots of women*. A lot of fun was had by all in attendance and I was honored to spend my last day on a 14er, for a while, with two great guys on a momentous occasion. Climb on (and bring the scotch)!


*Seriously, dudes, teach me your secrets!

Congrats Bill and David! You guys are rockstars! Watching you both reach #58 was so awesome! :-D
"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."
