Congratulations Sue! I never thought anyone would do this. I ran into you in February on Isolation, and i'm happy to hear you accomplished this incredible goal!

This is absolutely amazing - I've got 6 peaks in Maine to finish for my NE 4000's - but this is incredible!! It eggs me on to at least try for 4000 footer winter ascents.

Congratulations!
