Oh yeah? I've climbed all the 14ers in at least 10 countries. Maybe 20 or 30, I stopped counting at a certain point.


Well I just back from climbing Olympus Mons! THAT'S RITE! :mrgreen:

It will basically be a collection of the trip reports I wrote for each peak afterwards...so it could be somewhat wordy. In fact, I am pretty sure that I'm the first person to ever do this.

I've decided to try Little Bear Labor Day weekend for my first 14er!............on a mountain bike. I will ride up to the Hourglass, haul the bike up by ropes, leave the bike at the head of the gully, hike to the top and back and then ride back down the Hourglass after first making sure the coast is clear. (I don’t want to injure anyone by knocking loose rocks on their head). What’s my chances for success?

:D

chipthemonk,

I hate to bust you bubble, but that's already been done on a unicycle while carrying a pony keg.

Dang, you are one State ahead of me!
I'll be neither one of you guys has tagged all of the 14ers in Florida. That Mt. Epcot is one for the record books. You have to be at least as tall as me to pass the trailhead.

Between the parking fee and the cost of a permit to get in, that place makes Culebra look like a bargain. And the people! I'd rather go somewhere less crowded, like the Decalibron on a Saturday.
