PETER BRAUN: 24-HOUR FINISHER 3-Peak Challenge 2016

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page
 

About Your Experience:

"It was quite difficult to complete the challenge without training beforehand. At one point, I was considering giving up and skipping the Jacinto hike, but I ended up doing it anyway and finishing 10 minutes before the end of 24 hours. This experience made me realize that even if I feel that I no longer have the energy to do something, that feeling is usually illusory. I can push farther than I think I can."

Challenge Highlight:

"We reached the summit of Mt. Baldy just in time to experience one of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen. We were almost alone on the top of this austere peak, sharing the experience with a camper and another 3 Peaks participant. The sun threw its vibrant hues across the blanket of clouds below of us, through which only peaks protruded. It was a good start to the challenge."
