Photo Contest: No Summit Too Small

 Colorado Mountain Club 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. Whatever your “summit” was this summer, we want to know about it! In our opinion, there is no summit too small.

Enter your favorite photo that shows you or your friends conquering a “summit”, whatever it may be, for a chance to be on the cover of the Trail & Timberline magazine, receive a limited edition adidas Terrex rain jacket, one free year of membership to the Colorado Mountain Club, and a Colorado Mountain Club swag pack.
