Mountaineering is a great time, but I agree with you about Everest. If you want to do something fun, challenging, and not quite so dangerous or commercialized check out climbing 14ers. Climbing all the ones in the state is a common past time in Colorado. They all have varying degrees of difficulty and depending the peak and time of year you may have a beautiful day climb completely alone.

The couple years I lived in CO I managed to get a few done and really enjoyed the experience.




My favorite moment while at the top of a 14er in CO: heard a helicopter, looked around for it, then realized it was below us.
