Mt. Cleveland summit celebration

My long-time pal Duane Gilliland and I celebrate on the summit of Glacier National Park's highest peak, Mt. Cleveland. It was our final climb to complete the list of the 58 current and former Ultra-prominence peaks in the 48 states. (Mt. St. Helens is no longer an Ultra after the eruption of 1980, but we both climbed it in the '70s). Two other climbers, Bob Packard and Edward Earl, completed the 57 remaining Ultras before we did, but to our knowledge, nobody had climbed the 58 before we completed the list on August 17, 2008.
