Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

Summit !

Looks like most of the first wave of the FirstAscent team has now summited. Very nice! For Ed Viesturs, that’s number 7!  It’s not easy to compare this athletic feat with other kinds of performance, other than to say this is phenomenal and a major accomplishment. The overused word awesome applies here. And apparently (this according to great reporting from Alan Arnette) these guys went up and down in superb time. So impressive, especially when you consider the crowds reported. (See next post). Congratulations to all-something over 30 already on top, and more to come in the next day or two.
