Justin Simoni writes: “A few weeks ago, I thought a righteous challenge would be to see how many laps on the Second Flatiron’s Freeway (low fifth class) route I could do before my arms fell off. 

“After 16 hours, I had accumulated 20 round-trip laps! 20 up, and 20 down, done in succession with little rest in between. A fantastic day of moving meditation after weeks of preparation on the route searching for the most efficient path. Sixteen hours, netting 11 miles, gaining/losing 10,600 feet of elevation. Such an intense concentration of expressing various mountain disciplines in a familiar setting just a few miles from the house.”
