I didn't want to be a 40 year old virgin, so I climbed Mt. Lindsey at age 39.

While I don't like comparing climbing a mountain to losing your virginity, I was 27 when I did Longs Peak and 31 when I did Capitol.

I was 26 when I did Grays. It was just two weeks after I moved from NY to Colorado!

24, to the mountain of my dreams. I wanted Longs from back in the innocent time when I was unaware how "mounted" she was on any given day. :?

Well, dad did drive the whole family up Pikes when I was 8......but that wasn't much of a conquest.

Darn... Whitney for me too when I was just a little boy! No wonder he was so easy to bag on that one night stand. He didn't look that bad when I started in the dark. Next time I will bring a more powerful flashlight, and two pairs of boots in case one of them breaks.
