Combined up and down? Like Whitney or keeler, etc, in a day? Grand cnyn rim to rim...quadruple dipesea? Silver state 50/50? (aprox 20k'), various ski tours?

If so, yes.

up and down would be too easy, i suspect. pretty big club.

not sure if i've done 10k vertical in one day, but possibly. if not, maybe a bit less. i'd have to go back and start counting contour lines.

at some point in it becomes a bit silly. 10k at high el is a lot different than doing baker two or three times in one day. 10k of hiking is a lot different than 10k of technical.

lots of folks thought mr was lying in his 14k claim on tahquitz. it can be surprisingly difficult to measure vertical relief, much less elevation gain over an extended distance of rough ground.

Probably at least a few times hiking/peak bagging (pre gps) never technical.

As far as MR's claims, he did El Camino and lapped us once as we were getting ready to do Coffin Nail.

Wasn't even out of breath.
Even had time to flirt with the princess and chat for a minute.

14K of Tahquitz in a day was certainly within his ability.

Whitney in 24 hours car-to-car is 12,000 elevation change

Does that count?

tgt-- tahquitz is one of the best places one could go to pile up max vertical tech mileage. compact, high, lots of easy and wirable terrain, moderate elevation. he based his claim on pitch count, though, and most pitches at t aren't vertical.

doesn't bother me too much. maybe it was only 12.1. someone would have to get ueber geek with an inclinometer to get a better approximation. and even then, you couldn't account for all the little up-then-down moments involved in the traversing bits.

one of the reasons the 10k-in-a-day deal is a bit silly.

eventually, this will become one of those stupid records that gets measured in mileage on a calibrated stepper indoors.

Talking 10,000 uphill. Done it once mountain biking crow peak 7 times in 24 hours. Trying a hundred mile ride on sat that will have 16,000 if completed. Something like 35 are biking it but I ub nderstand that around 200 are trying to run the course.

Did the N Face of San Jacinto (Snow Creek) in about 11 hours once- that was pretty damn close to 10K in a day.

"whitney 12,000 gain???huh? dint know of that 2000 elev trailhead!"

notice the post mentioned "12000 elevation change" as in 6000 up and 6000 down

Reading comprehension...?

Left LAX 6:30 am, arrived at camp @ 17000 ft by 4:30pm.
Airplane, car and hike. Had bloody nose, head hurt and couldnt sleep. Did the summit next morning and then went to Mexico City for 2 days.

Once, and only once. I was bedridden for three days afterwards. Mos Def not my cup of tea. Much prefer 100' of 5.12 thin crack, ftw.
