[Also known as "the old man's birthday challenge"]

I'm putting this entry here as a place-holder. As more people complete 50-route days, I hope they will add their lists of routes in the comments.

What could be more pleasant than going for 50 routes in a day, all ground up? This challenges your capacity for climbing logistics, your ability to keep focused and moving, and is also a pleasant work out.

Should take climbers of moderate ability about 10 hours to complete.


more fun if you visit more areas


as light a rack as you can stand

We parked at the CCC, and did this car-to-car in 9:40. 52 routes, because I lost track, and because Gokul wanted to do one more after what we thought was 50.

Wow, impressive day! Watching you two climb was awesome! I can only hope to climb that smoothly someday. Sorry if we held you up at all on Kenosis. Oct 10, 2016

Nice work Gokul and Doug. You had to be moving ultra fast. Did you do rappels in between all these routes that were in the assorted areas? Oct 10, 2016

Burt, that would be a trade secret!

Actually, you are the person who taught me it is worthwhile rappelling for runs like this - only two or three formations where we didn't rappel.

Matt, we skipped three routes we intended to do that had people on them, but Kenosis was not one we had to skip! Hope we didn't rush you, we had lots of other options. Oct 10, 2016
