My goal this year is to finish the 14ers (58) along with my Climbing Partner Scott, finishing on Capital Peak with my parents and some friends in the basin down below.

In the process we hope to do the Wilson group in 1 trip, 3rd of the 4 great traverses. Possibly Pyramid and Snowmass in 1 trip, Maybe Huron and Antero in the same day.

"Only" 9 left to go but they are mostly difficult and far away. After we are "done" I am going to be done climbing mountains at least for 2013- my wife has put up with me being gone enough the last couple years.

Number one goal I guess this year is to be safe.

You should post your intended route so all of us can pick it apart, criticize it, and say how we could do it better. After all, that's our favorite thing to do.

In all seriousness, that sounds awesome. Best of luck and we'll enjoy following your progress.

Mt. Elbert, just to say I've done it, and Longs for sure. Also the Chicago basin and its 14ers. My biggest goal for the summer is to hike the entire Colorado Trail. Along the Trail I plan to hike at least San Luis peak but may hike another one or two.
If I have time (which I should) I would also like to hike Wetterhorn, Uncompahgre, Sneffels, Crestone needle, Capitol, and Pyramid

Got 8 more, on the 2-year plan. 4 this year and 4 next. Hoping to make it back to the Wilsons this summer.

I hope to "finish" the 14ers this year, for the 1st round. It's been a multi-year adventure.
N Maroon and Mt of the Holy Cross remain.
If all goes as planned, will finish on Mt of the Holy Cross for myself and finish a deceased buddy's 14er list there simultaneously.

There are soooo many peaks in my mind to climb, surprised my melon hasn't exploded!

Not much of a list person, like to climb whatever appeals, for whatever reason.
Looking forward to exploring some new areas this year! :-D

I might do Mount Shavano, but I think that's it.
