About Your Experience:

"I completed the 3-day Challenge in May by myself but my son wanted to do it in preparation for his upcoming Whitney trip. Because of logistics, we elected to do the 3-week Challenge. All in all, it was a very beneficial experience."

Challenge Highlight:

"Arrived late to Mill Creek Ranger Station to find all permits had been issued for the day. We decided to take the Momyer Creek route up and left very late for a very long day of hiking, after having dropped a car at the Falls trail-head. The route was beautiful and uncrowded. 13 miles later we arrived at the summit in the rain. The trip down Vivian Creek while shorter was still difficult given the extra climbing on the way up. Headlamps blazing, we traversed the last few miles in the dark arriving safely but very tired after 22 miles."
