We started our attempt with the goal in mind to finish with a competitive and respectable time, since there is no co-ed category yet for this route. We feel like we did just that. The top men’s time was a bit out of my reach for my speed, but Andrew and I felt we could try for a sub 8 hour and get the second best, which sounded just as exciting to me, so we choose to start on Tuesday sept 5, at 7:20 AM (because I can’t get myself out of bed in the morning) and we finished at 3:07 pm. We did this unsupported starting and finishing at the old standard upper S.Colony Lake Trailhead, 3000 feet below the summit of Humboldt to meet the Colorado rule.

here are our splits: 

Start: 0720

Humboldt: 0832

(Columbia point summited twice but we did not count this) 

Challenger: 1042

Kit Carson: 1103

Crestone Peak: 12:57

Crestone Needle: 13:53

Finish: 15:07
