Unnamed mountain peaks would be named for Colorado climbers Charlie Fowler and Christine Boskoff under a bill authored by U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton that passed the House last week.

Fowler Peak and Boskoff Peak would be on the border of San Miguel and Dolores Counties.

Both climbers were tragically killed in a 2006 avalanche while attempting to summit Genyen Peak in Tibet.

“Charlie Fowler and Christine Boskoff were celebrated mountaineers, but they were also known for their tireless advocacy for human rights, dedication to philanthropy, and stewardship of the environment,” said Tipton. “Through the designation of these peaks, their legacy and life’s work will live on for generations to come.”

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration, where it’s sponsored by U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet.

It passed with unanimous support in the House, so we are hoping for the same in the Senate.
