Various publications are running a story about John Niedermeier completing all 50 highpoints.
He noted in the article “The hardest (climb) was probably Mt. Elbert in Colorado. I had to do it that day or had to come all the way across the country to try it some other time.”
Club President Tim Webb was quoted as saying, “There are more people that have climbed Everest than reached all 50 highpoints in the U.S.”
