Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"The 3-Peak Challenge motivated me to give my first longer (more than a few hours) hike a try!! I had never before summitted anything, and now I've made it to the top of the three tallest peaks in Southern California. It was fantastic motivation!"

Challenge Highlight:

"One highlight of the challenge for me was making it to the top of our first peak -- Mount Baldy. It was my first time making it to any summit, and it felt like an incredible accomplishment. I was so happy to have gotten to the top with the friends I had gone with!"

Favorite Gear:

"I finally got a CamelBack hydration pack in preparation for these hikes, and the convenience was second to none. I'm still happy to bring along my beloved insulated Klean Kanteen bottles to refill along the way, but it's so great not to have to stop in order to rehydrate!"
