Started at Bowlens creek at 8am sharp, stared the 4 mile climb gaining 3700ft onto the ridge, tagged 6 peaks over 6,000ft to the summit of Mt. Mitchell right at 10:25am on the dot and touched the observatory at the top. Had a GPS signal malfunction the first mile until it connected back. (I NEVER STOPPED THE WATCH AT ALL!!). I arrived at the top in 2:25.12 beating the previous record, held by Alex Garcia 2:31. by 6 minutes. Have tried twice previously in the past 2 years but never had a good day, today was a great day overall conditions wise and cloud coverage.
