I've climbed 45 of the 58 14ers. Now only the hard ones remain.
Longs. My partner bailed halfway and I was the only one on the mountain. Plus 15 hours was a long time to be hiking.
Wetterhorn. It looked pretty scary but it was just walking up steps.
Sunshine. I hiked it up the back way and it was nasty sliding scree for hours. Worse, a gully had slid and changed from class 2 to class 3 or 4.
I'm on my second half century and I love getting out to hike and climb. When I'm not enjoying Colorado, I'm traveling to check out this cool planet.
