Nice video and thanks for posting.

I was out there too. Started a few minutes after you from Turtle Rock. Was really a great day.

Saw you guys a couple weeks earlier at the Alta Alpina climbing up Kingsbury Grade. You caught me 2 minutes into that video grinding up the hill.

Nice video. Almost like you're really there, without the suffering or hypoxia.

Quite an accomplishment, but it doesn't sound like it was the best environment. I too dislike big crowds, and this seems like it was one long line after another. Maybe they should limit the number of entrants (or do they?). Has this ride always been like this? Anyway, 15,000' of climbing...like a BOSS!
