This past Saturday I attempted the Lake George 12ster Ultra hiking challenge. 40+ miles, 12 peaks, 24 hours.
I am a pretty experienced ADK hiker; I’m a 46er. However, this challenge was way more than I had ever done in a day. I wasn’t sure I could do it but I wanted to prove to myself that I could.
It was grueling. It’s hard to describe how brutal it was both physically and mentally. But! I finished it. 3:50am – 9:58pm; Total time: 18h 58m (including ~2h driving)
It’s on TikTok. If you enjoy the first video, I’d appreciate a like, follow, or share! I’m planning on posting other hiking challenges as well. (perhaps the LP9er Ultra or S6er Ultra??) Watch out!
Also- here’s the link to my recording on Alltrails. In the morning, my phone was so cold that it turned off so I lost a little bit of the recording on Sleeping Beauty/Erebus 🙁
