Looks like he has done Evans, Bierstadt, Grays and Torreys all in the first 6 hours. Nice start.

He just texted me and said he's in the car on the way to Quandary and he feels good and hope the weather holds.

When did he actually start? The spot makes it look like 0630.

Depending on his time he probably has a few options ready for the Sawatch.

My read of the spot track is that the first point was 4:52am - close to his intended 5am start.

Very cool. Way to go Eric!

My guess after the big Q is......Decalibron then onto Missouri Gulch...... That'll put him at 12. Harvard/Columbia after that?

I am planning on starting at Missouri Gulch tomorrow morning at 4:00 am for Oxford/Belford/Missouri day. May be I will "run" in to him?

Any new updates?- my old computer won't pick up the spot links.

This all coming from a guy who tried to take out a truck with his bike last fall...

Nice job, Eric. You're like the energizer bunny.
