Elk Mountains Grand Traverse - March 2012
2012 Elk Mountains Grand Traverse. After bailing last year, Eric and I needed redemption. With better gear and way more training, it was actually fun... though definitely torturous at times. 40 miles and 7800ft of climbing with no sleep was challenging. We almost had to turn around when I lost a ski at 5am up on Star Pass, fortunately 30 minutes of searching and we found it stuck in a bush a couple hundred feet below the trail. We finished in 12hrs, 23mins putting us in 56th place. A damn fine adventure!
