Tracking my progress on the Colorado 14ers.

It’s stupid to have a checklist for things that could easily kill you, but Johnstons aren’t known for starting down a path and then stopping mid-stream…
14ers are mountains that rise above 14,000 feet here in Colorado.
Some are popular and easily accessible (Quandary Peak, Mount Evans, etc), some are more remote and inaccessible (Chicago Basin!).
Some are easy walk-up routes, some are serious climbing. No matter what, bring your A-game because Mother Nature has a lot of ways to kill you. HAPE (the major cause of high-altitude death), HACE, inattentiveness, selfie-stick, when it’s your time it’s your time…

It is not the mountains we conquer but ourselves.

14er Ranking Caveats

* To be ranked, a peak must rise at least 300 feet above the saddle that connects it to the nearest 14er peak (if another exists nearby). 
This guideline has been in use in Colorado for some time.  The following peaks are not ranked because they do not fit this criteria, but they are on this 14er list because they are named and recognized on USGS maps:
Mt. Cameron – rises 138 feet above its saddle with Mt. Lincoln
El Diente – rises 259 feet above its saddle with Mt. Wilson
Conundrum Peak – rises 240 feet above its saddle with Castle Peak
North Eolus – rises 179 feet above its saddle with Mt. Eolus
North Maroon Peak – rises 234 feet above its saddle with Maroon Peak
