Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"It started as a beautiful night on Baldy: the stars were out, moon bright, little wind. I was feeling good as I finished my first peak and moved on to the next. But somewhere along the ascent up San Gorgonio, my pace slowed and I could feel the exhaustion kick in. It felt like I was dragging myself up the mountain, and I became convinced I wouldn't be able to finish the challenge. At the peak I decided to force myself to just keep moving and not stop. At some point, I found my rhythm, and everything became a rush to get to San Jacinto. Once I was on that tram ride up, I knew it was going to happen."

Challenge Highlight:

"The highlight was when I was able to get my hike back on, and I knew I was going to get 'er done. Coming down that final descent was very peaceful. Evening was setting in, I had the trail to myself, and I didn't have to rush off to the next peak, or rush at all."
