Dr. Jon Kedrowski and Meteorologist Chris Tomer joined forces in 2011 for a groundbreaking
project. Kedrowski slept on the summit of all 55 Colorado 14ers from sunset to sunrise in
95 days. Tomer joined Kedrowski for many of the bivys and provided realtime weather analysis and
forecasts throughout the project. 99.99% of climbers start predawn to avoid afternoon
thunderstorms, but Kedrowski and Tomer did just
the opposite actually hiking during the stormiest part of
each day in order to make the summits before
sunset. It's never been done before.
Their story is being
published by Westcliffe Publishing in a full-color
coffee-table style book, Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado 14er High Bivys
due out June 2012
Nation-wide. The book
contains high resolution photography of every
summit, sunsets and sunrises, harrowing stories of
rogue storms, bear attacks, and peak-specific
discussions of meteorology and geography from Tomer and
Kedrowski, experts in their respective fields. It's a story about teamwork, taking risks, and
climbing the proverbial mountain of life. Many of the lessons read like a blueprint for success
in business as well. There's no other book like this currently on the market.
Sleeping on the
Summits includes a special Foreward by Colorado
icon John Fielder, as
well as comments from
mountaineering legend and author Gerry Roach, North Face athlete and inspiration Diane Van
Daren, Baylor University Mens Basketball Coach Scott Drew, and ultra-running Grand Slammer and author Dr. Bob Boeder.
"This is the most difficult accomplishment of my life so far, and It was as tough as climbing Mt.
Everest this past May 2012. Linking
eight 14ers on consecutive nights required me to
dig deeper than ever before - talk about draining. Even with Tomers' excellent forecasts I
was still nearly killed by lightning on Mount Harvard."
"This is what it's all about. I'm not interested in coasting to the finish
I wanted to raise my
meteorological skills to the next level. We wanted to see what we're made of. It took us
three attempts to sleep on the summit of both Little Bear Peak and Capitol Peak because of epic
thunderstorms. Success was much sweeter after that."
