Well my 50 Peaks project has been a journey, to say the least. After 38 successful summits, I finally failed to reach an objective from my original peak list (peaks I could have done properly/safely in earlier season, but waited too long to tackle). I had high hopes I’d stick with my original list until the very end, but I’m now faced with either not getting 50 total peaks this climbing season, or instead finding a few other worthy peaks inside the park to add on, before the serious snow arrives (which is terribly soon). The decision is a funny one, as I’m working within the framework of a project I created entirely on my own. This is the reality I’ve created. Given all the blood, sweat, and tears (and one blooper fall into a creek 😅) I’ve poured into this project and park, I hope I can get to 50 peaks, any peaks, very soon, which is the climbing goal, whereas the ultimate goal is to shine a light on this special, unique national park and public land.
Tomorrow I’m heading here 👆🏼 (perhaps my favorite place on earth) to climb more … wish me luck!
