Suggested 14er

Two families are traveling to CO in July (kids 16 years to college). Looking for a recommendation on a 14er. We are all in pretty good shape, but no experience in technical climbing.

Rockies page ?

Lately in the Europe forum, ranges were discussed, and few questions raised like why do not we have range pages for the Ands, the Himalayas, the Rockies.

highest paved highway in the world?

Google (and other sources) usually point to the Karakoram Highway as the highest highway in the world, with its highpoint being the Khunjerab Pass at around 4,700 meters. It's Wikipedia entry covers its ass by calling it the highest "international highway."

But the Tibet Friendship Highway runs through two passes claimed to be over 5,000 meters and long sections are at over 4,000 meters. The Friendship Highway is just about completely paved now, so it ...

PCT Boobytrapped


It'll only get them prep'd/ready for when they hit the South end near the border and start to encounter them human coyotes.
