ERIC XAVIER VALENZUELA: 24-HOUR FINISHER 3-Peak Challenge 2016

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

About Your Experience:

"Exciting,HOT!,challenging

1 Peak-Got lost on desend from Mt. Baldy  summit. Set me back some hours with extra climbs and added miles.  Ended up coming out a mile down on baldy road after following a plumbing line out of wash.  A friendly but probably startled resident came out and instructed me to Baldy road.

2 Peak-Gorgonio was a battle with heat.  got saved by some younger men with a water pump.  Refilled my pack and saved my day.

3 Peak-Jacinto is lovely to finish but heat was a factor.  Just didn't try and think about the 2 hour drive back to Venice after a long day.

All 3 peaks where a nice lesson for the future.  Glad I did it!"

Challenge Highlight:

"Getting San Gorgonio finished in full sun,after the way Mt.Badly ended.  I felt lucky to get through Gorgonio. With Jacinto I was trying to finish at a decent time before my rush hour drive home to Venice,CA."
