In November of 2006, I took my scout troop to a presentation by Ed Viestures on his new book about summiting the 14 peaks over 8,000 meters. Well, it got them pumped, which is what I was hoping for. They cornered me and said that they wanted to bag Kings Peak. Well, they didn't have to twist my arm too much. We decided on the first week in August 2007 to summit. We were successful, getting 8 out of 10 scouts on the top of Utah. Not only was it a success by summiting, but it gave a few of the boys a whole new experience. Some of them had never been backpacking, let alone a 5 day adventure. I'm proud of them, because it was not easy. But, I hope that it is an event that they will always remenber. I know I will.

Thanks man! It was a great and successful trip. I just realized though, there isn't a picture of the boys on top. I'll have to see if i can find one. We didn't make the summit as a group. There were three groups spread along the ridge, depending on how they felt. In the end it worked out. Luckily, all the leaders were in "mountain" shape.
