Great report as usual. That is physically way out of my league. The mere thought of dayhiking the Black Divide is quite audacious. This is like a modern day version of some of John Muir's dayhikes.

I've done some crazy outings with Eric, both dayhikes and backpacking trips, but this is just incredible. I couldn't believe when I heard about it after Day 3 in the Sierra Challenge, though nothing should surprise me anymore. Well done, kid.
