Here is Part 3 of 4 of preparing for a 14, selecting what mountain to climb. Not sure if you heard about the guy who got stranded on Long’s Peak this week and miraculously survived, but it’s a good example of why we should always research our route ahead of time.
I’m getting summer summit fever and ready to plan summer hikes, sisters! Here is Part 2 of Bob Doucette’s series on preparing for a 14er. This focuses on what gear to bring.

In late fall, NPR joined Summit Sisters founder Stella Juarez and two young women on a climb last fall to chronicle their second 14er summit. Turned back by dangerous winds just a few hundred feet short of the summit, the adventure still made for an interesting learning experience. Listen to the NPR radio story.
