Mitchler & Covill are Highpointers, leaders in a band of zealots whose passions command them to ascend towering summits, and some not quite so tall... from an almost ridiculous 4,119 foot hump along a road in Phillips County to the 14,433-foot summit of Mt. Elbert in Lake County. To be a true Highpointer, you have to climb them all.
