Sunday afternoon, The Pack's very own Greg Fischer became only the third known human to summit all 73 of Colorado's points over 14,000ft. by reaching the summit of SE Longs. This man has been on a mission this year and deserves the highest of all honors for completing such an amazing feat. Congratulations, my friend. Truly amazing!
Save a place for me up in the high country.
There's still space to breathe.

All that AND the four great traverses - including the Little Bear - Blanca traverse when he already had both summits from previous trips... Bravo Greg! Enjoy your next three winters in June-September!
Only SUN will melt the sadness.

I thought Greg was a robot
But seriously, well done. And enjoy your time in South America

Now that's what I'm talking about! Way to put us other finishers of the measly 58 in our places.
Seriously though, amazing work, Greg. You have had quite the year.
Really look forward to seeing what's next and hopefully we can climb together soon.

As I told you - I'm seriously impressed. Well done on an Elite accomplishment.
You can touch the void, just don't fall into it.
I fly a starship across the universe divide....and when I reach the other side...I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can. Perhaps I may become a Mountain Man again.
To me there is only one style of climbing, Alpine Style.

That is sweet to finish ALL of them, way to go! Let me guess S. Bross was your favorite unofficial?
