Glacier Peak Triple Threat
When Sam Thompson and Brock Gavery put their mind to something, you had better pay attention. Two years ago they completed the first-ever Mount Rainier Triple Threat, a mind-boggling tour of Washington's largest volcano that started off with biking to the mountain from Seattle, then climbing to the summit and descending, and finally running around the mountain on the Wonderland Trail. Oh, and they did it in just a hair over 80 hours.
Later this month, the boys are back and this time they are taking on Washington's most remote volcano, Glacier Peak (what, haven't heard of it?) in what looks to be the craziest Triple Threat to date. All three legs of the route can only be described as primitive at best, and we're excited to see what they pull off out there. Big Wilderness.
Here's Sam's nonchalant breakdown of the adventure:
"We're leaving on bikes from Seattle next Thursday (9/20), riding up there, climbing Friday morning, back down to White Pass for a huge food/drink binge and a nap Friday evening. Then we'll start the circumnavigation late Friday night/early Saturday morning. Finish someday...Just let me know if you want to plug in at all."
By "plug in," I hope he means watch from a safe distance. Thanks for the heads up guys. Good luck out there.
