Man Hikes to the International Space Station

Postby Jim Davies » Mon Oct 24, 2011 6:53 am

Well, sort of. 1.3 million vertical feet in a year, apparently all on the Incline and Barr Trail. Wow.

1.3 million feet/7,500 feet on Barr Trail = 174 times in a year. Not my cup of tea, but hey, heck of an accomplishment.

530 times up the incline, 34 times up the Barr Trail. Even more tedious, IMO. :)

Perhaps the mind-numbing repetitiveness serves to silence all thoughts and promote Zen enlightenment? I climb, therefore I am... :?:
