My wife has high expectations in the beginning, but is a bit disappointed when it’s over. Speaking of summiting a peak of course.

Just make sure they are registered and have all the proper permits.

The European licensing is much more traditional than the American Mounting Guide Association.

Some hikers go through Fairplay and Climax, before they even get to the trailhead?

I've seen an old map where it's marked as Foreplay instead of Fairplay.

When Climax was an underground mine and they had removed enough ore that the ground started to cave in and open up a sinkhole the miners called it the glory hole.

They also need to be good with rope techniques and knots.

It's certainly good to have one's rope work down. But on the 14ers, it just slows you down too much.
