We kicked off the 2020 goals thread in December of 2019, so let's get rolling on 2021!

Mine:
Get to a total of 160 CO 14er summits.
Finally do my 20th 14er snowflake. Got a bunch of 13erflakes this past winter, but no 14ers. I have no intentions of doing all the 14ers in calendar winter, but I'd like to eventually have done at least 25 of them in calendar winter.
At least one more 14er ski descent.
A couple 13er skis.
>ski Grizzly couloir. Been dreaming about that ski line for years.
Do 18+ new 13ers, including finally doing Casco Peak and Mount Ouray.
Ski 30+ days.
Run another marathon.
Run another ultra.
Run at least 1,000 miles.
Run a half marathon 1h45 or faster.
At least 2 more summits outside of Colorado.
Get a COVID vaccine sooner rather than later.
EDIT: Do at least one more 14er with my mom (she has done 12 unique, 16 total).

EDIT 2: sort of mountain-related. I already have made a habit of trying to only fly once per year for my carbon footprint. I intend to continue that aspiration but am committing to purchasing carbon offsets for any flights I take starting next year. It matters. The last 3 times I've flown have all taken me to/from places with dying glaciers. Some irony there.
Update: down to the wire! I used the dryflake conditions to do Princeton 3/6 and Sherman yesterday 3/19 for my 19th and 20th 14erflakes.
Also at 24 ski days so far this season, so with 2+ months of ski season left, I'll definitely pass my ski days goal.
Hopefully getting my COVD vaccine in the next month.

"I get scared sometimes—lots of times—but it's not bad. You know? I feel close to myself. When I'm out there at night, I feel close to my own body, I can feel my blood moving, my skin and my fingernails, everything, it's like I'm full of electricity and I'm glowing in the dark—I'm on fire almost—I'm burning away into nothing—but it doesn't matter because I know exactly who I am." from The Things They Carried

- Ramp up snowflake count, especially 14ers (currently 10 & 10 for 14ers/13ers – doubling both would be awesome but very much a “stretch” goal).
Status: Success - more or less. Total of 23 winter summits: 11 new 13er flakes, 1 repeat (that part solid success); 8 new 14er flakes, 3 repeats (since the repeats were part of helping others achieve their goals I'm counting that as close enough)

- Complete several extra routes/laps of different Flatirons climbs (been loving the Royal Arch, Freeway and Buckets, but need to upgrade my climbing to move on with the long-term goal of being comfortable enough to take on the harder 13er/14er peaks/routes).
Status: Succeeding and continuing (have done several more routes with more to come!)

- Get more time practicing in the climbing gym and possibly take a class or two to up my climbing skills.
Status: Succeeding and continuing (took a rappelling class that I hope to put into action before long; also planning to get back more to the gym)

- Next summer (if not sooner) crank up big on 13ers (currently at 69. Stretch goal would be 100 but that’s probably a pretty big stretch for me, unless I get on a roll with peak clusters).
Status: slowly underway (added 3 new peaks over winter; with winter now over will switch focus to new 13ers)

- Also most likely a summer or later goal, do some more fun ridge scrambles like I did this past summer and up the ante with increasingly challenging routes.
Status: Pending (though I did work in several peaks with some fun winter class 3)

- Resume travelling to Haiti once conditions permit (ok, not mountain related per se although it’s known as the land of “mountains beyond mountains.”)
Status: Pending

- Carry on the momentum I’ve started to build of being less of a loner by actually teaming up with folks at times.
Status: Succeeding and continuing (did multiple hikes this winter with a couple consistent partners and have done a few other hikes with various others, with possible follow-on hikes to come)

- Possibly try to team up with some more highly experienced/skilled climbers to help me safely tackle harder peaks/routes.
Status: Pending

6. 12 new fourteener snowflakes. I got 5 last year and then 5 new fourteeners from spring-fall. Clearly there is such a direct correlation that it is actually a causal relationship.
12/22 - Pikes
1/4 - Princeton
1/7 - Shavano
1/11 - BroLinCamDem
1/13 - Harvard
1/21 - Columbia
3/1 - Antero
3/7 - Evans
And just under the wire, with a trailhead return that left only hours to spare before the equinox: 3/19 - Yale!
Okay, I'm intrigued by the story for Yale!! Equinox was 3.37am MDT this morning, 3/20; what time did you get back to the trailhead?
I stumbled into the parking lot just before 10 p.m. after a 6 a.m. start...although considering that I finished a quarter of the peaks I listed on a different day than when I started them, I'm counting Yale's mere sixteen hours as a victory! :lol:

Congrats on your own fourteener flakes and the ski days - I say it can absolutely start snowing in earnest now so I can get some more of my own, too!

Shasta in June, hopefully Cotopaxi sometime this summer and basically just enjoying experiences with good people. I have definitely reached my max with alone time and am looking forward to lots of socializing and trips :-D

Re: 2021 Goals

Post by ekalina » Thu Apr 01, 2021 9:05 pm

Well things are moving along. It was an awfully mild winter, so I haven't even needed snowshoes yet, though I've mostly been messing around in the Foothills. If anyone wants to read about my dumpster diving/obscure peak bagging, here it goes:

-Hike at least 150 miles and 50,000 vertical feet
53.1 miles with 14,100 ft of gain so far.

-100 career ranked peaks (18 left)
10 out of 18 completed so far: 8547, Gold Ridge, 8140, Twin Sisters Peak (Boulder County), 8422, Gross Peak, Bald Mountain (Boulder County), Porphyry Mountain, East Twin Sisters Peak (Larimer), and Twin Sisters Mountain (Larimer). All Boulder County summits except for the last two. I really enjoy exploring various parts of my home county and visiting these (mostly) unfrequented peaks. Helps exercise the navigation and bushwhacking skills too.

-50 career Boulder County ranked peaks (9 left)
8 of 9 completed (see above)!

-20 career IPW ranked peaks (5 left)
No progress yet. I will likely wait until the snow melts, since breaking trail through deep snow sounds mostly unappealing at the moment.

-Finish the Raymond quad in Boulder County (5 left)
4 of 5 completed! The newly completed ones are 8547, 8422, Bald Mountain, and Porphyry. That leaves South Sheep Mountain as the finisher, which I hear is a fun scramble and has spectacular summit views.

-Backpack into Pine Creek; hike at least three 14ers and two 13ers from base camp
Not yet. Waiting for the snow to melt.

-Go on at least one backpacking trip (could be the above trip or a different one)
Not yet.

-Hike at least one peak in a national park other than Rocky
Not yet. I did hike East Twin Sisters Peak and Twin Sisters Mountain in Rocky though. I also plan to hit a Wild Basin peak or two this summer. Right, I'm supposed to be hiking somewhere other than Rocky...

-Decalibron
Not yet.

-Bison Peak in the LCW
Not yet.

-And above all, enjoy nature
Oh yeah!

-Oh, and don't get COVID. That would seem to jeopardize the other goals.
So far so good! Getting my first dose of Moderna tomorrow.

While it may seem like I'm on track to accomplish my modest goals, I am quickly getting distracted by running, so there is plenty of time left for derailing!

Four months down; eight more months to go in 2021. The year is 1/3 over. I hope you all got out as much as you wanted to. Please post. Remember that your goals are your own and if it is only to climb one mountain, that's great. I hope you guys had a good April. I got out 28 days, but unfortunately missed two.

As of 4/30/2021:

Generic Goals for 2021

Hiking and Climbing Days = 250-Currently at 107 as of 4/30/2021. Doing good, goal wise. I should get more than 300.
Summits Climbed = 150- Currently at 57 as of 4/30/2021. Doing good, goal wise.
Rock Towers/Technical Buttes = 10-Currently at 5 as of 4/30/2021. Doing good, goal wise, but didn't get any in April. Hopefully in May I'll do better.
Technical Rock or Ice Routes = 30-Currently at 14 as of 4/30/2021. Doing good, goal wise, but only got two in April. I'm hoping to do better in May.
Technical Canyons = 30-Currently at 14 as of 4/30/2021. Doing good, goal wise.
