The Second 14,000 Ft. Mountain

© Coleen Monroe and Reverse Retrograde, 2013. 

On the 29 August 2011, I summited my first 14,000 ft. peak (Mt. Bierstadt outside Idaho Springs, Colorado). I went up to Guanella Pass on a whim, and alone. Having just returned from the Andes, I was in high-altitude hiking shape. I was up and down in around four hours.

This time I had much better company than just my own thoughts. Russell came with me and we hiked the route from Summit Lake, via Mt. Spalding (thank you, 14ers.com! We couldn’t do it without you!). Enjoy the photos, and send me any questions you may have about the route.

If I can do this, almost anyone can.
