Edwin Gonzalez: 3-WEEK FINISHER 2018 3-Peak Challenge

 

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"I initially set out to do the challenge in 24 hours. Despite only sleeping an hour in the car, I got off to a great start in Mt. Baldy. Drove over to Mt. San Gorgonio, got an early start and felt great until I got to High Creek. From there I began to fade and lost a lot of time. By the time I got back to my car, the heat had sapped a lot of my energy but I had to keep going. To summit San Jacinto, I had decided that I was going to attempt the Marion Mountain Trail. By the time I got to the trail head I was very exhausted and mentally out of it. After an hour and a half on the trail, my left ankle was hurting. With nightfall an hour and a half away, I decided to play it safe and called off my attempt. After a week of rest, I returned to the Marion Mountain Trail and reached the summit of San Jacinto. Disclaimer: I forgot the original flag and had to write it up on the back of my permit for San Jacinto, sorry. Overall, abit bummed I was unable to repeat the 24 hour challenge this year. Maybe I'll get a chance to try again later this season."
