Ian MacDiarmid: 24-HOUR FINISHER 2018 3-Peak Challenge

 

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"Phenomenal experience all around!! We have been doing this adventure for a few years now, so we knew what we were getting ourselves into. This year didn’t let us down… The weather was perfect and allowed for minimal layering changes or need to carry loads of water. We met a few other hikers that were doing the 3-Peak Challenge. Our favorite was the 3-weeker that we passed on San Jacinto while he was resting in his hammock half-way up!  Overall, gear worked great, food/hydration was manageable, and timing worked well for traffic (driving and hiking). Besides a lot of great conversation and enjoying the outdoors, this is all about putting one foot in front of the other AND having a great attitude.  We can’t wait until next year. THANK YOU A16!!"

Challenge Highlight:

"There is definitely more than one: 1) Being with my partner!! 2) Seeing San Jacinto and Gorgonio from the opposite peak – it really puts in perspective the size of this challenge and how much distance you cover! 3) Starbucks Doubleshot Energy Coffee Beverage – Mocha. 4) Laughing."
