Re: [hr100] Fwd: Hardrock 2010, Kirk Apt 100 vertical miles
- Wasn't there some guy who climbed 330,000 feet at Hardrock, 52,000 feet at
Barkley, and 44,000 feet at Nolan's 14?

I was at the Hardrock as a pacer (for Dave Pease, from Grouse to
Cunningham), and had an outstanding weekend. Thank you again, and all
the rest of the crew, for an incredible experience.
On the drive home it occurred to me that Kirk Apt's 16 Hardrocks,
multiplied by 33,000 vertical feet (rounding down), equals 528,000
vertical feet, or exactly 100 vertical miles. Kirk has now climbed
more than 100 vertical miles while racing in the Hardrock. Which
makes him literally a multi-dimension 100 miler. I wonder if there is
another human being on the planet who has done that much cumulative
vertical in the same running race?
