Sgladbach completes the 13ers!!!

Postby SarahT » Mon Sep 15, 2008 8:35 am

It appears that Steve has become Colorado's newest 13er completer! There are 584 ranked 13ers in the state, making this no small feat! Less than 20 people have climbed them all. Congratulations Steve =D> . What are you going to do now?

My heartiest congratulations. Not only is the sheer number of peaks impressive, many of them are remote, difficult to access, and technically more difficult than any of the 14ers. A fabulous accomplishment. =D>
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.

WOW! :shock: That is seriously impressive. Congrats =D>

Especially Lizard Head... I look at that one and think, I'll be happy if I complete all, minus that one!

Awesome accomplishment! :mrgreen:

Good Lord, that is incredible.

And if you really want to be impressed, check out his 14er list. 353 summits of 14ers plus at least 584 13ers.

Holy Shnikeys! I knew there were a lot, though I didn't realize there were that many 13ers in this state!
