Me, too, but those are central to my plans...
In Colorado, I have seven centennials left. Finishing that list comes first, along with the nearby kickass peaks like the Trinities, Arrow, etc.
Next come 13ers with 2k of prominence that I have left: Treasure Mountain; West Elk; Jacque; Twilight Peak;South River (partners, anyone?).
Those are goals. The rest are just peaks that look like a blast.
Finishing the Ice Lake area scrambles (PK, USG, GH), a trip to Slate Lake and/or Peak C + Eagles Nest, and/or a trip back to the Lindsey area for Huerfanito/13660 all sound great.
I'm working on the lowest 100 Colorado 13ers, as well. This list is chock full of interesting peaks.
Also on the calendar already or in the works: Mauna Loa/Mauna Kea; Cloud Peak (Wyoming); Truchas Peaks (NM).

As of this past Sunday I now have two 'revenge' trips to undertake - Santa Fe and friends (Sullivan, Geneva, and Landslide) from Geneva Creek and James/Bancroft via St. Mary's (turned back by wind). I may try and park two cars and do the string Flora, Eva, Parry, Bancroft, James but for me, that's a long long day.

I have Rodgers, Warren, Epaulet, Epaulie, and Rosalie on my radar to finish the Evans area and I really really want to go give Pettingell, The Citadel, Hagar, and Golden Bear a go.

So all Front Range goals but who knows what the year will bring!

Though my summer goals mostly include 14ers...I do have a short list of 13ers I want to go for. They include Mt. Meeker, Mt. Adams, Red Mountain, and Mt. Oklahoma. If we have the kind of fall weather we have had the last 2 years then I will be spending a lot of time going after 13ers, with a focus on the closer ranges like the front range, misquito, ten mile, and sawatch.

3) East & West Spanish (yeah only 1 is a 13er, whatever!)

That's a mighty fine list there. I need quite a few of those too.

I like Monster's list. Can I join you?

My goal (i.e., hopes & dreams) for the summer is to get back to Colorado for an extended vacation. IF that happens, I may poach a Monster trip and maybe one of those secretive Papi trips too. If I fail at that, not all hope will be lost because I'll find other things to do. ;)
I would like to put some focus on cherry picking some peaks from my top 100 list though. And of course to add to my Gore Experience.

I'm down for a lot of this so you might be successful. Seriously though, we should make it happen. Sexton was a pretty cool outing last summer. I don't know about your buddy FireontheMountain though. The guy pulled into Cottonwood Creek last Friday evening, made a shitload of racket and didn't even say hello. As I slept there I kept expecting him to put a brick through my windshield. But I digress...

As far as my goals, I want to disappear in the Weminuche for a full week again, preferably with a car drop. Maybe Beartown to Vallecito or Molas to Vallecito. The logistics of a big trip are pretty awesome - counting ounces and measuring calories, meal prep, miles and vert, etc.

Ultimately, whoever has the most fun wins...
