Nolans14 Completion

After several years of scouting and training on August 31st, 2012 I left the Leadville Fish Hatchery with one goal in mind….to finish Nolans14 in under the 60hour time limit. With help from many amazing friends I was able to accomplish this goal, setting foot in the Blank Gulch TH parking lot 57hours27min14sec after I’d set out. I’d climbed fourteen 14ers in the Sawatch Mt range of Colorado in the second fastest recorded time, becoming only the sixth person to ever complete this feat. My trip reports below detail the training and events that this massive undertaking entailed.
