Beer Call on Mt Elbert

That's it - the last one I'm doing! This was it - the highest point in Colorado and the 2nd highest point in the lower 48 states. It was 'orrible! No boulder field this time and no full body scrambling which was nice but instead it just went up vertically - the whole way. 1000 feet a mile. Anyway we got there (amidst much grumbling and huffing and puffing from moi) and since it was 4pm on a Friday (in UK. It was 9am Colorado time) Chris was still on RAF time and 4pm Friday means beer call apparently - so he/we cracked open one of Colorados finest brews to sup at 14,433ft! Awesome! Of course the views were rubbish....
