I loved this article on OutThereColorado.com written by Spencer McKee. I am not a “climber” like Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell, but I love hiking fourteeners in Colorado and I am very impressed by their new feat the two accomplished in just 36 hours recently in the Rocky Mountains. Below is short excerpt from the article. Also Honnold and Caldwell’s Instagram pages look like good “follows.”
In recent days, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell teamed up to finish an amazing feat in the Colorado mountains.
Over the course of 36 hours, the duo completed what Caldwell dubbed the “Continental Divide Ultimate Linkup,” summiting 17 peaks over 35 miles. The route also included climbing 65 pitches on 11 classic climbing routes ranging in difficulty from an estimated 5.6 to 5.11-minus, including “Culp-Bossier,” a 5.8+ route on Hallet Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. In total, the route gained an estimated 20,000 feet over a series of ups and downs.
