Fantastic! Just getting into the tiniest bit of winter hiking you have my utmost respect. It is infinitely more difficult than summer! Nice job and good luck on your future climbs!

Congrats Jeff! Way to keep after it!

Hi Jeff,

We met last year on Massive and again, thanks to you for stompin the trench to the top. Because of your solid effort I was able to nab Massive and North without snowshoes in a day. You're a hard working man! When I'm healthy again, I'd like to swing leads with you anytime.
Congratulations on being one of the proud, the few, the crazed snowflake chaser. Feels good to be done, huh?

HUGE Congratulations to Jeff. I am so proud of you, my friend. You deserve this.

Jeff has also been one of my main winter partners and we have shared more climbs, summits and attempts than I can remember. Our shared love of big mountains climbing has forged a lasting bond.

"Hit it with a burst of slow," as Jeff always likes to say! He is one of the most driven, motivated, humble and talented mountaineers that I have ever encountered.

Last season Jeff really made a run for it, grabbing so many new (and difficult snowflakes).

In the summer of 2014, Jeff remained behind, solo, on Peak Lenin to give it another shot. He skipped a camp and was able to reach the summit. This past summer, he made it to 7500m on Gasherbrum 2.

Hello #9! Its been an honor to climb with you and watch your progress. Good luck on the Centennials (we both know you're going to try! :lol: )

Love you brother! :iluvbeer:

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.
