Third Body Paragraph
Topic Sentence Many climb peaks each year. Specific Support I saw over seventy cars in the parking lotof Torrey's Peak Specific Support I passed fifty people climbing Mt. Elbert. Specific Support In 1968, 4226 people climbed Longs Peak.
Another indication that climbing Colorado's highest peaks is not very difficult is the sheer number of people who succeed each summer. After descending from Torrey's Peak one weekend in August, I counted over seventy cars in the parking lot. On a week the previous August, I passed fifty people in various stages of climbing Mt. Elbert. Even years ago--in 1968--4226 people climbed Longs Peak (Paul W. Nesbit, Longs Peak, p. 68). Its parking lot today, to accommodate the number of climbers, is about a quarter-mile long.
