I have now climbed all 70 14ers in the contiguous US. And I must say the Colorado 14ers are my favorite. Colorful rocks, Colorful plants, and Colorful Wildlife. WA and CA have great fourteeners, but the only color is white (snow or granite).
I climbed this in early July and had to use microspikes and compacted hiking poles as hand holds climbing the last col...awesome to say the least. Highly recommended for all who are looking for one of many 14ers in the Telluride/Ouray area.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
