50 Highest Points in 21 days 9 hours & 48 min
Motivational and Adventure Keynote Speaker Colin O’Brady took on the 50HP Challenge on June 27th at 4:06 pm Alaska Time at the summit of Denali. In 21 days, 9 hours, and 48 min O’Brady climbed the 50 highest points in each of the U.S. states. He shaved 20 days off the previous 41-day record and ended his trek on July 19th at 2:45 am PST at the summit of Oregon’s Mt. Hood.
Here are the highlights:
The Final Week July 12th-19th:
- 8 peaks (CO, CA, UT, WY, ID, MT, WA, OR) back to back through the night with time for fewer than 3 hours of sleep each night
- The climbs amounted to 150 trail miles and totaled 55,000 elevation gain, nearly two Mount Everests from sea level.
- O’Brady climbed four of the highest points with his father on his 60th birthday. The climb was a reminder to Colin to always stay adventurous.
