Welcome to mySummits –
a virtual summit register available to anyone and everyone who climb the
mountains of Colorado!
Signing a summit registry is
an important part of mountaineering history and creates an outlet for those who
wish to express their sense of accomplishment upon summiting a peak. Starting in Fall 2013, those
who summit our top 100 peaks can sign registries electronically at www.cmc.org/mysummits.
This new feature provides better historical information as well as fun facts
about the peaks of Colorado. Plus, those who summit Colorado’s peaks will be
assured their signatures and relevant data will be kept as a part of history as
well as used for future studies.
Report Your 2014 Colorado List Completions
The deadline to be included in this year's completion lists is Oct. 15, 2014. This becomes part of the story of Colorado's history of mountaineering, and I'd like to encourage everyone who's completed a list to submit their name.
If you've finished the CO 14ers, 13ers, etc., or any of the CO Hundred Milestones (Highest 100, 200, etc.), you can submit your name to the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC) for the record books. The lists for completions submitted in 2014 will be published in the Winter issue of the "Trail and Timberline," the CMC's quarterly publication, and recorded in the list completion databases. You do NOT need to be a member of the CMC to register your completion. Also, if you've completed a list prior to 2014, but never knew you could report it, you can still turn in your name now.
All completion information can be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're reporting a 14er completion, please put "14er Files" in the subject line of your email, and include your name as you'd like it to appear, the name and date of your first 14er, and the name and date of your last 14er, or as much of that information as you can provide. For the 14ers, you can also write a paragraph with a story about your quest, and submit a photograph, which might be included in the 14er article.
If you're reporting a 13er milestone (Highest 100, 200, ..., 600 or All Thirteeners), please put "Beyond the 14ers" in the subject line, and include your name, and the name and date of your final peak in the list(s) you've completed. If you're one of this year's 13er finishers, please list out the info for each hundred group, not just the final 13er.
If you're reporting a 12er or lower milestone (Highest 700 and anything elevation-oriented beyond that), please put "Beyond the 13ers" in the subject line, and include your name, and the name and date of your final peak in the list(s) you've completed.

Colorado Mountain Club and Environmental Impact
As the largest outdoor
recreation organization in the state, we want to salute your achievements and
provide information to anyone who is interested in our peaks. As more and more people are
climbing our peaks, it has become apparent that paper registries are not
as effective as they were in the past. And as a
conservation/recreation organization we believe firmly in the words “Leave No
Trace.” With the increased signatures on the
registry and intense weather on summits, often the registries arrive in poor/illegible
condition once the CMC receives them; making the paper registries difficult and
often times impossible for the CMC to archive. For a short period, the paper
registries will still exist on some peaks. As one of the largest conservation
and recreation organizations in the state, we are excited to work with our land
manager partners in respecting their wishes and regulations to leave the peaks
cleaner than we found them.
