My friend and I scaled all of the peaks in two weeks, with (mostly) perfect weather, all 15 14’ers in central Colorado’s Sawatch Range. Some backpacking, some brew pubbing and lots of heavy breathing. Pro tip: prepare for all weathers, get an early start and be ready to bail, but enjoy every step of the journey.
