    Great story thanks for posting. Once again proving it doesn’t have to be fun, to be fun!
    "Climbing is about freedom. There's no prize money; there are no gold medals. The mountains are all about going there to do what you want to do. That's why I'll never tell anyone else how to climb. All I can say is, This is how I prefer to do it."

      Thanks for posting that.
      They burned through 26 pairs of shoes! Wow.
      That is a lot of hiking in under one year. So cool they pulled it off.
      I am looking forward to seeing the 14 Peaks documentary film that comes out on Nov 29th. Another astonishing feat!

        I keyed in on the shoes thing too. 13 pairs each. Got about 570 miles per pair.

        570 miles per pair is pretty good. 570 x 13, wow that is a ton of miles!!!!!!!
        I saw the Trailer, I can’t wait. I love mountaineering documentaries.

            Watched last night. Loved it though it could have easily been twice as long without dragging. Hard to fit the story of climbing 14 different mountains into 100 minutes without skipping over a LOT of details. I do recommend though.
