Bummed I couldn't join on your finisher or much this summer, but it was a pleasure tagging along so often during the beginning and middle parts of your journey. I'll definitely never forget our Chicago Basin trip, that was an all-timer. Just don't forget your shoes next time...

Looking forward to many more years of peakbagging and outdoor adventures! You don't suck, dude.
Thanks for letting me destroy a pair of your shoes. To this day, I still feel guilty and if I owe a pair (or partial amount) let me know haha thanks for letting me tag along and gain that experience! Now let's ice Climb

He's been burning up trail throughout the state this year, including on getting within range of finishing the Centennials. It's been a pleasure to join him on multiple peaks (and ice climbing this past winter)
Why am I just seeing this? Thanks for putting this up like weeks before I could anywhere! Looking forward to tagging more of these with ya, man!... just slow down for old Jeff and I

Nice combo finisher.
Thanks, they were. Once Wet was done, I had all the momentum to push ahead. Great views all around

And while I never met him, he gave me a maroon bells permit he didn't need in mid august and I did pyramid with it.

So thank you.
Thanks!
I did though? Were you with Sheryl? Maybe this was another instance where I gave one away! Glad to help, always

Congrats Kevin. Good work!
The summit is a source of power. The long view gives one knowledge and time to prepare. The summit, by virtue of the dizzying exposure, leaves one vulnerable. A bit of confidence and a dash of humility is all we get for our work. Yet to share these moments with friends is to be human. C. Anker
