Thanks Mountain Ninja, you saved me a lot of cutting and pasting this morning.

I hope this thread is satire, or friendly banter, stirring pot shot at people who live in Colorado for its intended purpose - the snow.

Nope, it was a couple of years ago. I rode up and back on the track before splitting off to the north. Did you think I dumped a partner up there? :lol:

Advantage: Summer
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

Ah yes, the 14er snowflake: the pinnacle of mountaineering prowess and achievement.

Seano: Yes. I thought that screenshot did an admirable job of portraying the suffering they went through. Too bad they didn't get a snowflake for their efforts. Noobs.
