Yes! 16 summits on 12 peaks.
Longs - its really long with scrambling. I also had a concussion at the time I didn't know about until I was up there.
Either the Gray's and Torrey's combo from Loveland pass or Pikes peak. The Loveland pass trip was so enjoyable because of the sense of adventure hiking in the dark only knowing which way to go by gps; getting to see the sunrise from the top of Grizzly peak and then the workout high from completing so many peaks in a day along with the sense of accomplishment. I did Pikes with a friend who's a gnarly workout dude and we ran all the flat sections up Pikes from Crags campground and it gave me the kick in the pants to workout harder and go longer in other activities.
Democrat or Sherman. Democrat is really steep and uncomfortable to hike up - I'd rather have scrambling up something steep or hiking but that odd place in between is awful. Sherman was too easy and the views are pretty boring.
Hey all! I love being outdoors hiking, skiing/snowboarding, practicing bushcraft, snowshoeing, camping, and backpacking. I'm a student at the University of Colorado at Denver majoring in civil engineering while working as a remodel carpenter.
