Capt. CO Finisher

Post by Wentzl » Wed Jul 15, 2020 9:09 pm

So this guy CaptCo from Florida bust in the scene. Joined on 7/14/19. FINISHED just a couple days ago with the Chicago Basin peaks in under one year.

Sure, this guy pissed me off too, with callous remarks about others who made costly mistakes. (Shavano tragedy)

And almost immediately afterward got stuck and needed to be rescued (Belford).

But somehow, if taken at face value (see peak list of CaptCo) this guy just came up here from Florida and made a mission of knocking off 58 14ers and did a nice job of getting it done.

I climbed Sneffels with him and had a nice day of it in very difficult conditions on the SW Ridge in mixed winter/spring conditions.

congratulations CaptCo for a job well done.

Congratulations, Alec! Not many people complete the 14ers in only one year. What’s next? Centennials?
