Being over 14k feet (old news) does not a 14er make, however. Otherwise, North Crestone Peak would have been challenging climbers for some time.

(Yes, I realize this article is some sort of joke, possibly above my poor level of comprehension.)

If you're thinking the prank is about the Twinkie break, you're mistaken. Twinkies made a comeback :-D

All jokes aside, Sunlight Spire is over 14K now right? The new measurements pushed it up I think. Maybe it should be added to the 'expanded' list, not that I will be in a great hurry to try and climb it.
