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.
