Dennis Scholl and I made it to the top of the 14,018 foot peak, the first time for the Miami based art collector, winemaker, philanthropist and Colorado peak bagger
The race was awesome. Reflecting on it briefly here, a few things stick out– I improved on my prior 2007 time, cutting off 1:16, with a good amount of credit due to meeting my goal of getting through aids stops faster. A crash in the early parts slowed me down for a bit, a simplified […]
A couple of weekends ago Christy and I climbed Casco Peak and French Mountain, 13,904 feet and 13,940 feet respectively, and in doing so put Christy just five peaks shy of reaching the summit of the 100 tallest peaks in Colorado. Located behind(west) Mount Elbert, we started from a camp in Halfmoon Creek. This tour […]
This is a quickie, both in the day and the write-up. Here’s the debrief: Neal had the morning free and wanted to go do something fun. I’ll be at Hardrock next week and was looking for more than a routine trail run. Very direct and in parts runable, we both agreed a fast lap on […]
Hitting the trail for a quick jaunt up towards Buckskin Pass on Saturday was our first visit to the area since ski season. Some useful route beta for the Maroon Bells area was learned. Here’s the report: Buckskin Pass and the Four Pass Loop The only news from down low is that as you pass […]
You Win Some, You Lose Some The weather forecast worsened each day as the weekend approached and we weren’t sure what to do. Christy, Lissa, Dirk, and I hoped to ski Mount Yale on Saturday and then try for Kit Carson on Sunday. If the forecast was right, the huge spring storm could shut us […]
If the number of visits from UPS in recent days is any indication, something’s going down. Our departure for Nepal and Ama Dablam is next week and with the steady stream of new gear deliveries it feels like Christmas around here. New boots, backpacks, crampons, gloves, overboots, down layers, base layers, sleeping bags and pads, one […]
Here’s a good one. When faced with the worst weather forecast in months, why not go charge up and down a 14,000 foot peak, covering a marathon distance as fast as possible and with the absolute minimum in gear. Sunday’s Pikes Peak Marathon was just that. Minutes before the 7 AM start they made an announcement. […]
His Holiness the Dalai Lama was in Aspen this past weekend.
It’s July 16th, a.k.a. the most important day of the year, and if you haven’t seen Christy and her long red dress and wished her a happy birthday yet, you can still acknowledge the significance of the day at the Aspen Club tennis courts until 8, then at the Sky until about 10 and finally […]
