I do like how it says, " and has skied from the top of nearly every Colorado 14er". Is he backing away from his claim?

He seems very keen on pointing out that he's a "doctor". Most self respecting people don't refer to themselves as "Dr. First and Last name". And a PhD in Mountain Geography???

Are there other peaks besides Little Bear where stuff shows he didn't ski the 14er like Davenport or others did? Like falling not skiing, or on a face but not from the summit?

Haha! Hopefully it was cancelled from the many 14er.com users and others calling in and making light of his bulls**t.

I think Capitol was one as there was someone else on the mountain the day he claimed to have finished but didn’t see anyone else up there all day long. Also Blanca as they’re wasn’t enough coverage. Might be others too.

Pretty sure Pyramid is in doubt too. His tracker mysteriously stopped working, then started working after he skied down and the time from when it stopped working until it started was not near enough to have actually summitted the peak...or something like that.

Yes, I know this has been discussed ad nauseam, but worth mentioning again in case someone is new to this. I have a Delorme InReach myself, and the tracking on them is notorious for being weirdly unreliable on certain mountains at certain times. I've gone on super forested peaks and not had reliable tracking at all, then done a peak right next to it the next day with the same type of conditions and have it work flawlessly. I've taken it on primarily above tree line hikes and had it fail to send tracking to the website.

I know this because my Mum freaks out if the tracking isn't working :-p

Extensive photographic and written evidence is really important from folks pursuing these peaks and these goals.
