The other day we made a go at running/scrambling every peak on the Eastern Skyline of Salt Lake City. It was long and fantastic. Here's a video.

A full report can be found here

Come to SLC, give it a go. It's good all day climbing training!

And in the first sentence of your TR I'm sure you meant Andy looked east, since the route you described ain't no where west of I-15!

Good on you guys! That's a lot more energy and motivation than I have!

Very impressive. Would like to try part of it someday. Are you gonna go back and pick up the missing pieces. How old are you guys?

yup, but I was going to let it slide just add one more route finding factor! I've done about 1/10 of that skyline, in bits and pieces, over ten years. Can't imagine it in one push.

+1 :-D

And interesting linkup! This is renewing my interest in trying for the WURL.

[Edit: I finally had a chance to view the video. Great addition! It really captures the run well. The early morning shots of LP were really cool. I love those magical times of day]

That's mighty impressive! Just doing Lone Peak and BC-Twins in a day would be epic. My knees started hurting part way through the video ;-)
