I’m slowly working my way through the Colorado 14ers. (You can check my progress here.)
My first 14er was Longs Peak in 1999. And honestly, it was a bit of a disaster.
We left the trailhead at 5 a.m. (too late) and climbed into a storm. Seriously, when you see the tourists in sport sandals heading down the mountain, FOLLOW THEM!
An hour later, we were running for our lives across the boulder field with our zippers buzzing and our hair standing straight up. Believe me, that’s the definition of a BAD TIME.
God smiles on fools and children, so I’m here today to tell this story. It’s actually one of the reasons I started this blog.
Climbing 14ers is awesome. But it’s important to remember that these are real mountains that require skill and judgement.
So to help you out, I’m pulling together all my best 14ers content on one page. Check it out, and if you have a question, please shoot me an email.
Cheers, Sarah xx
