Awesome Greg! I hope I'm not jumping the gun on posting this, but I just noticed your update.... ;)
You're a good guy, and I'm glad to have hiked with you a couple of times. I like your finisher!!

Congratulations! Well earned for someone whose strength in the mountains makes it appear almost effortless. I really appreciated having you as a hiking partner for the winter summits we have shared. Rock on.

Way to go, Greg! Greg is one of the strongest partners I have hiked with. I had the privilege of joining him on 7 winter 14er summits I believe, and a lot of those were tough ones. I will never forget our Crestones adventure!

It's been confirmed in person he did lounge on Huron on Friday. :) Greg, I cannot say enough about you as a partner. Our day on Cables route on Longs in winter is probably still my favorite (although Mt Wilson and C/C are not far behind). I will always look up to you and your standards. Stay awesome.

Considering how fast Greg is, I thought maybe this was the 10th time he finished.

Congratulations Greg!

Edit: I missed the point...finishing in winter was in my head....Congratulations on finishing them all in winter Greg!
