What is SOS?: Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado 14er High Bivys.  Dr. Jon Kedrowski and Meteorologist Chris Tomer slept on the summit of all 55 Colorado 14ers from sunset to sunrise in 95 days (July-September 2011).  99.99% of climbers start pre-dawn to avoid afternoon thunderstorms, but Kedrowski and Tomer did just the opposite actually climbing during the worst weather each day to make the summits before sunset.  Tomer provided pinpoint, real-time weather analysis and forecast windows during the entire project.  It had never been done prior.  There is no other book like this on the market.
If you've ever wanted to learn more about weather forecasting on every 14er this book is calling your name.

Who: Dr. Jon Kedrowski and Meteorologist Chris Tomer completed this "first-ever" accomplishment during the Summer of 2011.  Jon slept on them all while Chris joined him for as many as his work schedule would allow.

Content: High resolution photos from every 14er summit camp, sunset and sunrises, and rogue storms.  Peak-specific discussions of meteorology and geography from Dr. Jon Kedrowski and Meteorologist Chris Tomer.  Stories of teamwork, taking risks, and climbing the proverbial mountain of life.

Special: The book includes a special "Foreward" by Colorado icon John Fielder

Our book will also include special comments from North Face athlete Diane Van Daren, world-class mountaineer Gerry Roach (author of "Colorado's Fourteeners: From Hikes to Climbs"), and ultra-running Grand Slammer Dr. Bob Boeder (author of "Hardrock Fever: Running 100 Miles in Colorado's San Juan Mountains, and, "Beyond the Marathon: The Grand Slam of Trail Ultrarunning").
