Connor King: 3-WEEK FINISHER 2017 3-Peak Challenge

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

About Your Experience:

"I really enjoyed the 3-peak challenge. I hiked the three mountains on three consecutive weekends and with different groups. Mt Baldy we raced to the top as fast as possible because I went with a friend who is training for a Mt. Whitney day hike. San Jacinto and San Gorgonio I went with my sister and my uncle and went a little slower to get the most of the hike. I backpacked overnight at Dollar Lake Campsite while summiting Gorgonio since I recently got some new gear and wanted to test it out."

Challenge Highlight:

"The highlight of the challenge was definitely reaching the summit of San Gorgonio, especially since it was my last of the 3 mountains. I first started this challenge hopeful to finish it in 3 weeks but wasn't sure my schedule would allow it. Standing on the top of Gorgonio was a huge point of pride and accomplishment since I not only was able to climb the tallest peak in Southern California, but I was able to finish all three of the peaks."
