The Eagle's 33 Challenge consists in summiting all 33 peaks over 9,000ft (2743m) with at least 300ft (91m) of prominence in Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness. You can choose your own route between the summits. Most practical routes are likely going to be over 100mi with at least 60,000 feet of vertical gain. There is no time limit.

To qualify for the winter variation, the effort must take place between December 21st and March 20th. A winter attempt is a much more committing, to an already committing endeavor since uphill travel time will exceed downhill travel time, and skis or snowshoes are welcome tools to complete this challenge.
On Sat, Aug 8, 2020 @ 3am, I will start for a 3rd attempt at summiting all 33 peaks over 9,000ft in Oregon’s Eagle Cap Wilderness in a single push.
The 3rd Eagle’s 33 Challenge attempt ended in yet another failure: it took me a whopping 110h 17min (4d 14h 17min) to bag 32 peaks. For a totally inexplicable reason, I’m now going back for a 4th attempt with a new strategy and a new route. Planned start: Wed, Sep 2, 2020.
