Ascent Trip Report

Susan decided that my 40th birthday should be a special one. She worked with my climbing partner, Brian to setup a weekend trip to do something “special.” Brian thought that the Crestone Peak – Crestone Needle traverse would be a suitably exiting adventure.

I was delighted with the idea beyond all reason, but still I couldn’t help but think about doing more. I kept thinking about the other Fourteeners in the area and about how this would be the ideal time to bag them. The Kit Carson, Challenger and Humboldt mountains were within a few miles of each other and the Crestone massif; I developed what I would later call my “Crazy Plan” to get them all. 5 Fourteeners in 2 days.
