Devil's Backbone Run - Ft Collins - January 13, 2008


devils-bbone-20080113-1060.jpg

Thirteen of the Special Idiots met in Fort Collins for a spectacular run along the Devil's Backbone/Blue Sky trails. Most in the group did 21 miles, a few did 22.5 miles, and Kari and I did 27 miles. It's a great place for early season runs since the lack of tree cover helps the snow melt off quickly.

Mount Silverheels - February 23, 2008


IMG_3342.jpg

The 14ers.com winter gathering this year was Mount Silverheels (13,822') near Breckenridge. About 35-40 people showed up to do this one, which in itself is crazy! The climb was pretty forgettable, but it was really great to meet so many nice folks throughout the day. Most people met for beers afterward, but we had to be back home by 7pm and couldn't make that.

Colorado Trail Epic Run - May 10, 2008


ct-epic-20080510-1330_.jpg

Charles, Tress, Mike Priddy, Joe and I did an epic trail run of the Colorado Trail on May 10, 2008. It was epic because of waist deep snow near the end (covered with a thin crust). A simple 6-7 hour run turned into a huge 12 hour ordeal. We finished right after dark. The run wound up being almost 38 miles, with more than 6500' of elevation gain.

Mike, Marella, and I climbed Dragonstail Couloir on Flattop Mountain on June 16, 2008. It was our last climb together before they moved to Montreal for 3-4 years. The climb was absolutely stellar... it was a great way to go out in style!

Fish Hatchery to Twin Lakes (Leadville 100 course preview) - July 19, 2008


IMG_5931.jpg

On Saturday July 19, I did a 34 mile trail run on the middle section of the Leadville 100 course. I ran from Fish Hatchery to Twin Lakes and back. The distance wound up being longer than the race because I missed a few turns on the course (stayed on the Colorado Trail too long). Elevation gain was about 4500' and it took me a little under 7:30, counting all stops to treat water, etc.

A bunch of us (me, Kari, Eric, Tressa, Mike, Caroline, and Becky) ran the stellar Buchanan Pass - Pawnee Pass loop in the Indian Peaks Wilderness today. It was a 27.8 mile loop over two 12,500' passes. The wildflowers were in full bloom and were stellar!!

The Seal - East Face North Side (5.4, 5 pitches) - July 29, 2008


DSC01623.jpg

I climbed the Seal with my out-of-state friends Rick and Monica on July 29. Great climb! Probably my favorite Flatiron to date. We climbed the East Face North Side route, which was 850' long and rated 5.4. The best pitch was #4... a perfect finger crack that ran for 120'.
