Aaron Ralston Completes Winter Colorado 14’ers

Aron Ralston, the guy who amazingly
cut off his own arm,

just completed
his seven-year project to solo the Colorado 14’ers in the winter. According to Ralston, and this was
a goal BEFORE he cut off his arm, he has climbed 59 peaks above 14,000 feet. That said, the official peak count in
Colorado is actually only 54 peaks.

 

Ralston is really an amazing guy. Back when I first read his story, I had a hard time believing he severed his own
arm…after breaking it. I was sure it was a hoax or at least he so doped himself up on something he didn’t feel the
pain. No so. No anesthesia at all.

 

By the way, if you haven’t at least read the
Outside Magazine story about
Ralston, you should. And here’s his own
tale
