Only 960 ranked peaks left in the state of Colorado. Shouldn't take him long.

Congrats, John!

Congratulations once again John! I am impressed you were able to brave the smoke and flames on Trappers and 11460'! That is dedication and determination! But the truly impressive feat will be how quickly Alyson joins this exclusive club! Keep doing what you do! And thanks again for all you do here!!!

Congrats John. Truly amazing!!! It was a great honor to join you for your final 12er summit. Great job with Turret Ridge last weekend as well. Alyson will be next for this grand summit achievement. Montani semper liberi.

Thanks for sharing the pictures Dan!

We had a great time on the finisher hike and for all those who joined, thank you!

It sure has been the adventure doing these peaks with you John. Hopefully, I will be finishing them off next summer! Congratulations!
