And another toast to you! (Although in contrast to greenonions', my Malbec might be merely perfectly acceptable).
Cheers!

That is both a great achievement and a great inspiration to us middle age climbers who are concerned about how many more years we might have left. Awesome job!!!

Awesome! I did not realize the 105 was a thing. Now I have a new goal.
Century Bound, eventually.

Didn't know you were at KC guy. That makes it even more impressive.

Nice work, John! It was great being with you on your original 14er finisher on Little Bear years ago!
