As many Sierra classic peaks as I can make it to, a couple of peaks a year, until I'm physically not able to climb any more.

I'm on a variation of the "Fatdad" plan.

Thank God for the Sierra Nevada.


Hey Fatdad & JHH60, don't forget Old Guys Rule! O.K. maybe we won't rule the 7 summits and the 8,000 meter peaks, but we can rule the Sierra!


Update: 14 California Fourteeners done, one left to do. Check off Polemonium, North Palisade and Starlight. :D


Congrats Rick, keep up the speedy work :D

Erebus, Villarica, the Cuillin Ridge, Fuji, Denali, Shishaldin, and Piton de la Fournaise. Erebus is never going to happen but one can hope. Villarica should be done by Jan, maybe Fuji after that.

When I'm older but still just enough in shape to do it. If I die at that age, so be it.
The route has not been repeated since its 1st ascent many years ago. It may never be.


Hopefully you're exagerating a bit. It's way more fun to live.

Almost too many to count. Most of them no one here's ever heard of (or even noticed).

Grand Teton and/or Moran
Gannett
Devils Tower
A handful of the more difficult CO 14'ers.
Rainier
Eagle Peak in Yellowstone (mostly because it's so remote and not much is known about it, it probably doesn't see very many ascents.)

Not sure if I understand.. WHY does a person even need a stinking list ???

Why not just take one day at a time. If it happens, it happens..

There's plenty of mountains within a half-day drive of my front door.

I'd list a few, plus some I've just added but Chad and Vitaliy would give me shit. So I won't. Hope to snowshoe up to Chaos Crags on Saturday.
