Valerie Campos: 24 HOUR 2018 3-Peak Challenge

 

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"This was by the far the most physically demanding & challenging thing I have ever done! Taking Marion Mountain to San Jacinto Peak instead of the tram route made it THAT much more challenging (my advice: stick with the tram route!!!). It took everything in me to complete this task & I truly pushed my body & mind to a whole new limit!"

Challenge Highlight:

"Hiking Mt. San Antonio at night under a full moon was absolutely incredible! I can't believe I've never done a night hike until now. I'm going to start doing those more often. Especially under a full moon – and with friends!"

Favorite Gear:

"My favorite gear item was my pair of Merrell Capra Venture Mid GTX Surround Hiking Boots! The grip on them was so helpful, especially on the steep descent down Ski Hut Trail on Mt. San Antonio – I had to lend my trekking pole to a friend that was struggling & I was able to descend without one thanks to those boots!!"
