Black Tusk, The Chief, The Lions - 14.5 hours

Last Sunday a friend and I climbed Black Tusk, The Chief and The Lions in one day. 50km and over 12,000 ft of elevation gain.

The idea came to me about a year ago and never really left... not like some of the other crazy ideas I have had.

The 14.5 hour odyssey was BY FAR the hardest thing I have ever done. I am trying to put it into words for you all but it is taking longer than I expected - partially because I am still recovering.

There will be a full report with tons of pictures and video very soon!

Here is a shot of Keith and I on top of The Lions - our third peak of the day. We still had to descend and 2 hours of that descent would take place in the dark.

Can't wait to tell you all about it.... sorry for the teaser!

Tweet this!
