Fools Traverse 2019 “the sixpack”

The Fools Traverse is a gnarly 27 mile, 11 peak challenge that takes you through the wild of the San Gabriel Mountains. You are given 18 hours to complete as many as possible. The peaks sit above 8000′ and include Mt. San Antonio who sits the Tallest at just over 10,000ft. Shannon and I didn’t feel confident we could do all peaks but we wanted to participate in the event. Shannon felt comfortable doing the 3 biggest peaks(Baldy, West Baldy, and Chapman) first with me and the dog in the morning then push me off solo to do the 3Tees (Thunder, Telegraph, Timber) Peaks and return via the Ice House saddle and meet her back at camp after. We sought out to do just that………….



More training and I would feel comfortable doing all 11. Like my Dad used to say, “WORK HARDER!”


We came across a ton of cool people on this adventure. Look at all these smiling faces!
