3rd Time is the Charm as 2 Men Set Record For Climbing the Adirondacks
If like me, your idea of a hike is from the couch to the refrigerator and back. These two New York's men adventure will blow your mind as they set the record for climbing the 46 peaks of the Adirondacks.
While the rest of us celebrated July 4th with fireworks and cookouts, Michael Jock and Lukas Wear were concluding their 46th peak in 6 days, 23 hours, and 45 minutes. The story first reported by the Watertown Daily Times, says the two are personal trainers living in Manhattan. They attempted the record twice in 2018 with two others but were turned back by bears, kidney stones, and injuries.
As if the story isn't already bold enough, their effort is considered an unsupported hike. It means they could receive no outside help, had to carry all their food and equipment, and had to walk the entire way, no rides between trailheads.
In all, they covered 212 miles in ascending the 46 peaks with their final day alone covering more than 44 miles and moving for 23 and a half hours. Both estimate they lost 15 pounds in eclipsing the old record of 7 days, 14 hours, and 15 minutes.
