Fantastic accomplishment (s), and cool pics from the distance. Winter climbs of the 14ers are not easy, super impressive.

Congratulations, Jeff. Heck of an accomplishment. You should just go to Moab for the rest of the winter and enjoy the desert sandstone for a few months.

Hearty congratulations Jeff! Since only 8 others have even accomplished this feat...that says it all.

I just climbed Blanca Peak on Jan. 04th and it about killed me. I can't imagine (and don't have the winter 14ers as a goal) doing them all.

It takes a unique person to mentally preserver to do this task. You are certainly a unique person....especially looking at your partial peak list posted by Matt Pierce.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments. It's an honor and a privilege to climb mountains with you. I have ran in to most of you at one time or another in the mountains. Special thanks to Yikes ("That's what we're here for!") who I have done the majority of the winter 14ers with. I Man - It was awesome to climb the Bell Cord with you after all those years of sweating over it. I also remember climbing Wilson Peak with you and Peter. It almost killed me. You are definitely passionate about the mountains. Rob (Toe Crusher) - Thanks for the countless trips to the mountains that we have shared and for crushing Andrew's toe instead of mine. Blind Mule (Don) - You are the one that got me started on winter mountaineering in the first place. I remember when you would take off solo in the winter with the Walrus (tent)! You have been a good friend and climbing partner for many years. I remember when we took winter camping school. Matt Pierce - Thanks for being a good friend and my go to rock climbing partner - and for scaring the crap out of me on Castleton Tower. Sarah and Dom - thanks for breaking trail for me twice up Spanish creek! I always run in to you in the craziest places. Devils Tower, Moon Lake, and Peru.
Mad Mike - you are in a club all by yourself. Blazintoes - you are way faster then I will ever be. That's why you are Blazintoes and I'm "burst of slow"! Kevin Baker - It was cool to meet you on Snowmass. Colin - Looking forward to talking mountains with you over some scotch! globreal - I remember meeting you on Mt. of the Holy Cross in winter. You may have carried my shovel back up to half moon pass! Congrats on Blanca in winter. Dillon Sarnelli - glad we could help each other on Mt. Massive last year. d baker - I love all the grief you give I Man (Super Mario) - It's good for him!

Thanks everybody.
