3 Day Challenge

I had a small of window of time in Summer 2016 to try one of the Adenture16 3 Peak Challenges. I wasn't in shape to do the 24 hour challenge, so I opted for the three day version. San Jacinto, San Gorgonio, and Mt. Baldy. 54 miles and 15,500' of gain in three consecutive days.

Day 1- San Jacinto via South Ridge

6/22/16  21 miles, 6,000' gain
I decided to make the Challenge a little harder by not using the tram for San Jacinto and instead trying South Ridge, one of the longest routes to the top, and a new one for me.

Day 2- San Gorgonio via Vivian Creek

6/23/16  19 miles, 5,400' gain
Most all the San Gorgonio trails were closed due to a fire last summer, so I took the only viable route. It was my first time doing Vivian Creek in non-snowy conditions.

Day 3- Mt. Baldy via Devil's Backbone

6/24/16  14 miles, 4,100' gain
I had only taken the Devil's Backbone route as part of a race before, so it was great to experience it at a more leisurely pace. The ridge trail makes-up for the miles of otherwise mundane fireroad.
