Now this guy is extreme....

This guy, Homie, is attempting to beat the record set in 2000, of climbing all 58 of the 14k' peaks in CO, in under 10 days 20 hours. He just started a couple hours ago...

This would be hard just from a financial standpoint let alone how difficult it would be to climb that many mountains without a few days rest between

I don't think its that expensive, not like climbing Denali or Everest. There is no expeditionary type stuff. Its mostly groceries, gas and a couple friends doing driving, camp setup/cooking.

Sure it probably cost a couple g's but yea the rest thing is crazy, I don't think he sleeps more than 4 hours....we'll see its pretty fun to watch it unfold between the blog, tracker, and fans going apeshit on the 14ers thread. It seems people from his group are posting there as well.

Thats why I don't plan to do Everest. I think I "might" be able to make it, I just don't have 50-75k lol. I do hope to do Denali/Mt Mckinley someday though since its 9,000' shorter and only $5-8k. I'm going to do all the 14er's too just over the course of 50 years or so. Already have 8 done

I think I read somewhere that you actually do more or almost just as much vert on Denali as Everest.

Yeah because it starts out so low in elevation. I'm not worried about the cold, I have a thyroid problem that makes me run hotter so 30 degrees to someone else feels like 50 to me. Thats why I had to move up to the mountains and away from Denver (that and the asshat drivers). Also the hiking part ain't bad, I go on 3-6 miles hikes almost every other day in the summer. The part I would be worried about is the elevation. I can take a 14'er like a champ, but 20k ? Holy shit, thats more then a mile higher!

-Btw, did you happen to go Chatfield, Dakota Ridge, or Columbine? If so what year?

I live by Columbine now, but didn't move to Denver till I was about 30-6yrs ago.

Man, CaveDog, the previous record holder just posted - epic!
