Photo Contest: No Summit Too Small

Here at the Colorado Mountain Club, we believe that summits come in all shapes and sizes. And no matter what, when you conquer something new, you have reached a new summit, be it getting to the top of your very first 5.6 climb, summiting your 54th 14er, backpacking for the first time, or mountain biking down a trail that you’ve been too scared to before.

Submit your best photo of you and your friends conquering a “summit” for your chance to win a bunch of cool prizes.
