Roughly 750,000 people attempt to climb a Colorado Fourteener each year. Of those climbers, the majority start pre-dawn to avoid deadly afternoon thunderstorms. Now imagine doing just the opposite — climbing during the stormiest part of each day and then sleeping on every Fourteener summit, from sunset to sunrise, in 95 days. With striking photography and expert analysis, the authors explain how they tracked and dodged storms above tree line, climbed with maximum efficiency, and were treated to 54 stunning sunsets and sunrises while perched at over 14,000 feet.
