Have some fun.
Living closer to Colorado, I want to do a number of interesting class 3 and 4, 4000Meter + peaks, and avoid 14ers when ever possible.
Maybe take a trip to CA, WY or ID to enjoy a scramble or two.
Might do a backpacking trip, might not.
Might go to Mexico, might not.
I do want to go to Tucson and hike some of the trails down there, it's like the Sierra but smaller in the Catalinas.
Stay in shape, get as much elevation as possible.
Maybe go someplace new all together? Libya?

I want to do first winter ascent of something in Sierra...although confirming that no one climbed particular route on that peak is quite hard. Basically want to have own adventures mostly. Do not care if someone climbed it or not, as long as I do not have any information on how the route is in winter I believe the experience is nothing less than what first ascentionists had, if there were any.
Another goal is to climb more than I did in 2011, get stronger, take a significant vacation, and do a significant challenge.

Some of the SPS mountaineers & emblem peaks ,as well as many others,are not near one-day approach and Trans-Sierra ski routes and probably have not had any winter ascents particularly by technical routes.I've never gone a week in the Sierra without seeing anyone from another party except in the winter.

I agree with all of that, thus my confusion by your first sentence. Just don't try to confirm anything!

I'd like to knock off some CO county highpoints, maybe a few 14ers, and at least 50 Larimer county peaks. Keeping it real, you know?

What is it with CO climbers and the enumeration of peaks?

Get this damn cast off is my first priority. Doctor told me even though it fits in my tele-boot (without the liner), it really doesn't belong in my tele-boot. I wonder what he thinks about my bouldering?

After that I want to attempt a 20ft 5-7" crack through a roof that a friend has found, but who knows if it will go by my partners or myself. Why, because its just SO wrong.

Also looking to do the first ascent of Paradise Lost (at Paradise Forks, Az) by an old fart in a pink tutu.....

Myself, once I get this damn cast off want to finally get Red Planet and Lifeline in Sedona, Arizona (finally)-

Also need to get back to the Creek to finish up business such as Optimator and Learning to Fly (broke my foot just after starting to work on that one). And need to get to Zion to attempt to free Moonlight before I get too old.

Also heading down to Peru in June to try to finish up business that I tried 10 years ago and got shut down on.

Yeah why not, as I said before. Got my eye on a few peaks in the Balkans.

You's guys are taking this WAY TOO seriously, except for Bill Reed.

I'm NOT driven by goals. If it looks good, I do it. If it doesn't look good, I save it for later.

End of story ..
