nullSome of the folks from Adventure 16 – a wonderful SoCal chain of outdoors stores – recently conquered the 8000 Meter Challenge — a back to back to back hike of Mount Baldy, Mount San Gorgonio, and Mount San Jacinto all in 24 hours. In total, it involves 38 miles of hiking and over 11,000 feet of elevation gain.

To put it lightly, it’s an effin’ monster of a hike.

The crew wrote up their experience, as well as details on all the gear they were using and tips for hikers who’d like to eventually test themselves with this challenge as well (like me, for instance).

Read all about it at the A16 blog.
