On July 27, 2015, I conquered Colorado's toughest 14,000+ ft mountain, Capitol Peak.
It became my 43rd Colorado 14er. Click the image below to read the story
and watch video of my crossing of Capitol's infamous knife-edge, which
sports drop-offs of greater than 1,000 feet on each side of the narrow spine
leading to the 14,130 ft summit. As of August 9, 2016, I have climbed ALL 58
summits above 14,000 feet in Colorado on a multi-year journey
that has carried me across many regions of this amazing state on many
mountaineering adventures. It has been the experience of a lifetime!

“Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.”
“If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each person’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“The smaller we come to feel ourselves compared with the mountain, the nearer we come to participating in its greatness.”
