Great link that has an interview with Gerry Roach, one of the most accomplished mountaineers in the United States. Roach is the author of “Colorado Fourteeners: From Hikes to Climbs,” a classic guide book for people wanting to tackle that state’s highest peaks. I’ve used this book extensively over the past few years.
In addition to climbing all of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks, he’s climbed several hundred peaks over 13,000 feet, every North American peak over 16,000 feet and the fabled “Seven Summits,” the high points of the world’s seven continents. Yep, that would include Everest, back in 1983, before guiding companies turned the world’s highest peak into a conga-line of well-to-do adventurers.
Here’s the link. I like his insights.
