3 Centennial finishers on Rio Grande Pyramid

Postby Kevin Baker » Mon Sep 03, 2012 9:42 pm

Congrats are in order to Mike Rodenak (Chicago Transplant),
Kevin Pustulka (Papilion), and Sarah (Wooderson) on completing CO's
100 highest summits with a successful climb of Rio Grande Pyramid!
They topped out at around 9am on Sun, Sept 2. Mike brought up
a delicious brownie cake to celebrate.

Any favorites or memories to share in pursuit of this fine list? Thanks for the invite on a special weekend in the Weminuche. Great one to finish on!

It was really cool seeing all of you up there.

Good times, good brews and of course good popcorn :)

I did RGP the day before. Assuming you all took the standard route from RG Reservoir, we probably crossed paths as I hiked out. Well done.
So pleas'd at first the towering Alps we try,
Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky,
Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise!
