54 peaks in record timeIn the western United States, the term "fourteener" describes a mountain peak that stands at least 14,000 feet (that's 4267m eh) above sea level. In Colorado there are 54 of such peaks (this number is up to debate based on qualifying criteria, but let's stay on track..), and one individual has climbed to, and skied from, the peak of each one; in record time no less!

Josh Jespersen tackled the 54 peaks in only 138 days, smashing the previous record of 361 days. He even climbed some of the mountains twice as he made a rule that each must be skied from the peak, and conditions did not always allow skiing from right from the peak on the first attempt.
