Does anyone know what the record is for completing all of the Colorado 14ers solo and unsupported while sticking to the Colorado Rule? I've only been able to find one reported record of such an attempt by Peter N. Jones in 16 days, 13 hours, and 43 minutes in 1995, but it doesn't say if he stuck to the Colorado Rule or not. I wanted to know if anyone has done it faster. Thanks all!

I could be wrong, but the "Colorado Rule" most likely refers to the "3000 foot rule" that some hikers/climbers follow which goes something like this - in order to count a summit as legitimate, you must have ascended 3000 feet to gain the summit from the starting point, and also must descend on your own power.
