On day 42 of the Washington Bulgers FKT (100 tallest peaks in Washington), attempt Nathan Longhurst and I set out to see if we could go faster on Jack that any previously publically reported time. The time we thought we were trying to beat was 14hr, 34min (turns out it was 14hr, 10min due to a more recent reported time).

We had fun. 

we didn't end up doing any rappels but can certainly see how most would want to on the lower step. Also, definitely be super aware of your rockfall. otherwise, super fun. 

followed a route very similar to what Ryan Stoddard and Richard Kresser did. 

The time can still go a lot faster both due to conditions and because we had to sit on the summit for about 40min to get 4g service to read a few trip reports before going into the Chillawacks via Silver Creek from Ross Lake due to the Canadian Border being closed.
