 Elks Traverse, 14er Link-up  

On September 8th I left the Capitol Creek TH on an attempt to connect all seven of the Elk Range 14ers in a single push. I ended my journey 31:34:52 later at the Castle Creek 2wd TH, successfully setting the unsupported FKT for the connection.

Rather than recreating the whole report I'm simply going to link to my blog write-up. There is a description of the route and trip, including maps and photos of the line. Happy reading :)

I was climbing the S ridge on Snowmass that day and saw someone on the top super early - must have been you.

I remember you from my Boulder days. That's quite an accomplishment. Keep it up.

I don't recall seeing posts from you in a while, glad to see you are still out there. And even better, still CRUSHING IT! Very few people could do that traverse at all, let alone with your speed.

Just been working on other non-14er projects, mainly 30-60mi lines in the National Parks (and a year off traveling the world)
Thanks guys, one hell of a journey regardless.
