    Summating Longs Peak was the hardest thing physically that I have ever done. I got a bad case of altitude sickness on the way down and I thought I would never make it. If it was not for a good friend...

    This was a goal of my best friend for years and came my goal last year. Everything that went wrong did and we still climbed it. My first fourteener and not my last.
