    Which I'm assuming means he did Denali and (hawaii???) in 21 days... Is there a link to his schedule of which order he did it in? It would make sense to start on Denali cause their climbing season would be early in the year and if you don't make the summit, you can always try again the next year rather than do all the lower 48 and then suddenly fail on your last mtn...


    [edit ] Ah, found it!

    Ben, 20, started in mid-June on McKinley and hopes to complete at the end of July on Mauna Kea.

    More precisely, stood on them.

    Like other state highpoint visitors, he started the clock on the summit of Denali
    "It will be approx 49 days since he & I stood on the summit of Denali in AK at 12:43pm June 17th." so he didn't really "climb" it within that time. Note however that he climbed some of the other tough ones twice!

    good point, Roy; even Cave Dog does not begin his peak lists on the first summit, although he ends his lists on the last summit ("the Colorado rule").
