R ocky Mountain Madness is a meetup group that was established to provide exciting adventures in our wonderful Colorado Mountains. Although our main focus will be on climbing 14ers we will also climb 13ers, do some basic rock climbing, and trek up mountain passes as well as exotic less traveled trails. When you sign up for a trip please be prepared for the adventure by researching the trip and understanding the effort, and risk associated with it. The organizer is not a paid guide but a volunteer who is there to help the group be successful. So, in the near future we will be publishing certain rules of conduct which will be enforced for continued membership. Thanks for joining one of the most exciting mountaineering groups and we look forward to climbing many mountains with you.
