Any NY 14ers?

Anyone working on their CO or CA 14ers?
I have slowly been picking away over the past 4 years and I am up to 19 in CO. Always looking for partners for the annual trip. This year I was thinking either Chicago basin (some good 13ers here as well) or try to get a few more harder ones in the Elk range.

I am working off some of the 14ers too. I have a small group going to California June 22nd to climb White mountain peak,Mt.Muir, Mt.Whitney,Russel and a grand finale on Shasta.This is going to be one epic week adventure.I put in for 8 Whitney permits with 6 people confirmed "Going"!!I have 2 open spots left. If you would like to come please let me know.If interested i could give you my # and we could talk it over. Also is a short trip to Colorado in early August with a friend of mine looking to knock off the 54. We are going to climb 2 peaks there,but easier ones to break the ice then climbing Grand Teton in Wyoming a few days after.That trip is still in the making and is open to takers as well. Please let me know soon ..Thanks..Jim W

I have already climbed Shasta once and it is remarkable.Not very difficult. Mt.Shasta is more an alpine climb like Rainier which I also climbed last year. This group does have some good experienced climbers so you will be in good company if you decide to come on any trips with us..

Whitney I have actually done. If I go back to the Sierra in the near future, I want to go to the Palisades and save the easier ones (White, Muir) for when I am old

Shasta, well it depends. I made it all the way up Cassaval Ridge and then just ten minutes from the top (2/3 way up misery hill), visibility went to about 100 feet as weather blew in and I decided to bail.

Thanks for the offer, but I already bagged the Grand (although I wouldn't mind going back) and have Gannett and Mt. Moran on my radar if I go back to Wyoming.

Jim,

I live in CA for most of the year (SF area). I'd be happy to assist with logistics (transport, supplies, etc.) for you and your group. I did Whitney last August by the Whitney Trail route, after coming up 1/2 mile short the year before on a 1-day attempt. I'm also taking a couple of flegling climbers to Shasta in June.

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Ed

I am a 46er
I most likely won't be game for this year, but there is a good chance I'll be moving to CO and begin work on my 14ers so possibly next year if you plan on making it a yearly event.

With a choice between Chicago basin or the Elks you can't go wrong. All the Elk 14ers are fantastic. The Bells traverse is superb and Capitol is probably the best single mountain I have yet climbed.

Chicago basin is also a great trip. The Needles/Grenadier range is one of my favorite places in the US. There are some really great backpacking routes in there and there are tons of great peaks. I've been in a lot of the mountain ranges in the Western US and the Needles (and San Juans in general) are some of the best.
