Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page


About Your Experience:

"I initially signed up for the 3Peaks in order to train for Mt Whitney. Turns out, Whitney prepared me for San Gorgonio!"

Challenge Highlight:

"I intended San Antonio and San Gorgonio to be overnights but was denied on permits. Completing both of those as day hikes was really rewarding. Adapt and overcome!"

Favorite Gear:

"I carried my Dueter 38 for all three trips and even though it is a little large for a daypack, that thing is tried and true."
