If it's Youtube, get just the coding from the end, and using the "YouTubeVideo" button above this text field (in edit mode) click the button, and paste the coding...

if this is the whole path: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACpNVD5GMUw

Question about how to score this challenge: Does the difficulty of the 14er factor into the score of the dance? In other words, does the same dance get a higher score on Little Bear than it does on Grays?

Highest score would go to a Sunlight dance on the true top. ;)
I'm not advocating for someone to get too jiggy with it up there, but you know.....

Bonus points if you bring your own trusses and colored lighting? Dare I say...disco ball?

Due to travel concerns, the Dance Off is hereby being extended to Olympic athletes participating in their respective sport during the summer Olympics.

Isn't there a wooden one on Elbert's summit? Sounds painful!
Mountains cast spells on me - Why, because of the way Earth-heaps lie, should I be Chocked by joy mysteriously; stilled or drunken-gay? Why should a brown hill trail Tug at my feet to go? Why should a boggy swale Tune my heart to a nameless tale Mountain marshes know?

Mount Harvard had a wooden sceptre on it when I summited in September. Is it still there?

Aaaahhh, splinters!

For the people who dance on summits, do you bring music with you??? Or do you just dance randomly on video and edit the music into it later?

One of my climbing partners started playing the song on his phone when we reached the summit and it was loud enough to be heard on the camera. I hadn't planned to dance, it just worked out that way.
