Strickland supporters to climb Colorado’s fourteeners today

Today, Tom Strickland supporters across the state are expected to climb Colorado’s fourteeners – the 54 mountains statewide that rise above 14,000 feet.

People will be supporting former U.S. Attorney Tom Strickland’s candidacy for U.S. Senate and in celebration of Colorado’s public lands, according to a campaign press release.

“Summit With Strickland” will gather in Aspen and Boulder following the climbs, where nature photographer and environmentalist John Fielder will present a slide show.

Strickland says he is an avid outdoorsman and conservationist who has worked to protect and preserve the environment and Colorado’s unique quality of life.

More than 50 small teams will participate in the climbs. Strickland will be climbing Grays and Torreys peaks, which are approximately 10 miles west and south of Georgetown.

According to the press release, “In the spirit of celebrating Colorado’s beautiful places and promoting minimum impact guidelines for hiking and climbing, “Summit With Strickland’ is following the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative’s “Leave No Trace recommended practices, and has taken care to ensure that climbers treat the lands responsibly and respectfully.”
