Congrats Alec, impressive to do in the short time you did.

Consecutive months with at least one 14er, 44 months and counting...

Boy that was quick! Good job. Congrats!
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

Excellent, way to go. Go back to your favorites when you can for a stroll down memory lane above 14000 feet

Congrats CaptCO! I know we didn't get along back when you joined the forum but I'm glad you finished them, for the most part, safely. You came across so reckless with a f*** it mentality and safety isn't an option but it's obvious your experience level and you as a person were growing as you posted more. Stay safe.
