nice idea

No packs on the bike leg though? Looks like you guys had fun.

Re: nice idea

It was a blast, but no packs on the bike portion. I did some training with a light pack while biking and it would've been much, much slower. A trailer would be an interesting option, however.

I've climbed Rainier in less than a day myself, but not in this style. Well done! Perhaps some day I might try something like this myself. Also very much appreciate the work you put into this page, perhaps you should change the page type to a trip report or article.

Re: Impressive!

The report is now finished and has been changed to a trip report. I'm kinda surprised people found it as a custom object while I was drafting it...

Well done!

I'm impressed with your fast pace on the climb. Well written and put together!

Re: relevant stories

Sweet links, thanks for passing them along. I hadn't seen either before. Especially cool to see that someone's done Baker/Shuksan S2S... and that he'd done a Rainier S2S as well.

In the local press?

Great job! I hope that your local newspaper did a feature story on your feat. If not, perhaps the editor could arrange for it to be written and published after the fact? Again, nice going.

Re: In the local press?

Naw, no local press. While the Bozeman community loves their outdoor adventure, they've got plenty of local superstars to write about (Conrad Anker, Tejay van Garderen, Nikki Kimball, the list goes on). And honestly I wouldn't want the attention (Matt probably doesn't either). It's nice to have positive feedback from climbers here on SP though.

Very well done!

Dag nappit I need to find some friends who are fast climbers like yourselves...I do a lot of waiting for my friends on all the climbs I do since I'm "too fast" lol

Re: Very well done!

I feel pretty lucky to be able to climb with Matt when I get the chance (1-2 times a year). With other partners, I take the opportunity to work on my (very) amateur photography while in the mountains. Luckily, we took it easy on the way down Rainier, so I was able to get the camera out for sunrise...

Fantastic Idea

Love this report! So well done. I did Shasta last weekend, and started the day in Redding. And I thought how cool it was that I was going from 500' to the top of Shasta in one day, and thought of this exact idea, of doing it all with man power. If you guys ever do this insane trek again, I would love to be considered to join along.
