I hate to repost, but can anyone tell me (or direct me to a link that tells me) how many of the 13'ers are class 5?

there's roughly 7-10 of them. lizard head, dallas, teakettle, jagged, fifteen, coxcomb, and 13,121(maybe just tricky?) come to mind right away. saint sophia ridge is a dirty mofo(5.7), but it's unranked....and becoming a popular testpiece among 13er climbers.

look up fifth-class colorado summits on summitpost for a list(incomplete/complete?). viewing that list, it seems there's almost as unranked 5th class thirteeners as there is ranked ones. ... Peaks.html

FYI, south lookout isn't fifth-class, just scary as all get-out.

=D> That isn't just the applause smiley, it is the standing ovation smiley. Hard to tell since he has no legs but trust me, that's him. Congratulations.

Quite an amazing feat! Congrats! I doubt I'll ever come close to that.

Let me're going to repeat them all?!? :lol:

I’ll have a lot more fun doing new routes with experienced climbers and repeating old peaks with climbers who want someone along who has some experience with the peak. I like to come along with people who are tackling peaks that have them a bit anxious.

Steve, congrats on finishing the 13ers, a grand accomplishment.

That's a real nice offer you've made in your TR. I mostly climb the 13ers solo, but someday I may just have to take you up on your offer!

Congratulations sgladbach for closing another chapter in your life.

I am sure it’s overwhelming when you can look back at what you really accomplished.

Many people are driven to reach their goals but it takes a lot more than drive to fulfill this great performance. I hope many of us can learn from your love and passion for these beautiful mountains to continue with the goals we have set out for ourselves.
