Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"I had a great experience hiking with two other strong women. I had been wanting to do this challenge since 2015 when I first heard about it. It was difficult to get anyone to commit. So happy I was able to find these women to complete this challenge with! What better way to finish a challenge than with women empowering other women?"

Challenge Highlight:

"I enjoyed being able to see the sunrise at Gorgonio and to see all the beautiful fall colors! It was a bittersweet moment when I saw the sunset at Baldy, as I knew this challenge was coming to an end. The sun setting made me reflect on the training I had beforehand, and it was a reminder that all the pain and huger I was feeling would soon be over. I was even more motivated then to finish strong with two other strong ladies by my side."

Favorite Gear:

"My Salomons are my favorite gear. They have taken me up and down so many mountains, safely."
