Coronation Day – Len Shoemaker Peak – 13,631 ft.
Lou made it official, I was the third person to ski all of the Colorado 14ers. So when he (the 1st to finish) called to invite me to ski Len Shoemaker Peak along with he and some friends two weeks after finishing the project, I knew my coronation was before me, I just wasn’t sure how it come.
No ceremony yet, what’s Lou waiting for? It must be happening on the summit. Here Neal nears the summit ridge.
Just psyched to be out after a broken leg earlier this year, Neal looks up from below the crux.
Lou’s ready to go and still nothing. I guess there is something arranged when we get down.
Bob Perlmutter descends.
Perl, Neal and I would take a different line off the back and meet up with Lou lower down the face.
