Sleeping On The Summits - Colorado Fourtenner High Bivys


Roughly 750,000 people attempt to climb a Colorado Fourteener (14er) each year. Of those climbers, 99.99% 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 14er summit from sunset to sunrise in 95 days.
Sleeping on Summits: Colorado Fourtenner Bivys chronicles a project never done before. Mountain geographer Dr. Jon Kedrowski and meteorologist Chris Tomer take us to the edge and back. With striking rare photography and expert analysis, they explain how they:
- Pinpointed weather windows.
- Tracked and doged storms above tree line.
- Climbed with maximum efficiency.
- Identified escape routes.
- Dealt with hungry bears.
- Survived a direct lightning strike.
- Were treated to 54 stunning sunsets and sunrises while perched at over 14,000 feet.
