Come for one summit…challenge yourself to two… or go nuts with three.

There is no official start time and is self supported, just plan to wrap up between 2 – 4pm.

Recap –
2014: I wanted to challenge myself to a double Mt. Wilson summit from Lizzies Inn and didn’t want to do it alone. 40 friends and family answered my calling to conquer the mountain and we did.

2015: I was blown away by the huge outpouring of attendees and humbled by so many crazy people out there that I call family.

2016: I’m embracing your support and I want to celebrate YOU and say thank you! “We’ve got swag and will make a difference in kid’s lives.
