I like REI, but #-o

Hopefully he has an in depth review of how to litter by leaving business cards on summits

From the post:
In 2016, Jon Kedrowski climbed and skied each of Colorado's 14,000' peaks in one winter/spring ski season
:

Sigh. I'm pretty sure we figured that was not the case, right? But we knew that when the dust settled, he'd add that to his resume, because he's Dr. Kedrowski and he just kinda makes stuff up like this.

I do look forward to the chapters, "Proper Rock-Throwing Techniques", and, "Why LNT doesn't apply to you or your self-promotion". Riveting!

Yup, the following was removed from his Wikipedia page, I wonder by whom?!?!
Kedrowski claims to have skied all of the 14ers, but after being called out later by other 14er skiers Chris Davenport and Ted Mahon, he redacted his statement.

I like the photo. Lots of ski mountaineering going on in that group. Maybe that's his target audience for his "storytelling"? Explains a lot.

Not only are they cross country skiers, but the trail map is of the Methow Valley in Washington. It isn't even Colorado. Double whiff for REI.

Maybe that's just an REI stock photo?

I see he still lies about skiing all of the 14ers. :lol:
