There were 54 participants this year. Probably the biggest ever. I was #3 for the green jersey (masters!). Kinda fun being in that category! Very few females signed up for this.

day 5 - Gendarme Peak, my partner cancelled because of an injury. I decided to go for it since this was the “easyâ€

Last day of the Sierra Challenge, and the peak they did WAS a challenge. So Tomcat suggested Muah Mountain. I had the waypoint and a description in the truck. It was a nice day for a hike. (wk 82, day 3)
