Dave Jilk, my first business partner (Feld Technologies) and I have settled into a nice annual tradition of climbing a 14er each August. This year we climbed three in one day – Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, and Mt. Lincoln. We started at 6:15am Saturday morning.
By 8:15am we were at the top of Mt. Democrat.
The purists don’t count Mt. Cameron as a 14er since there isn’t enough descent between Mt. Democrat and Mt. Lincoln. But I count it because by the time you get to the top of Mt. Cameron you definitely feel like you’ve climbed another big mountain. Plus, I was powered by my TechStars socks.
After 6 hours, we made it back to the bottom.
What an awesome way to spend a Saturday!
