Max KingLocal running legend and all around nice guy, Max King, posted this on facebook about 12hrs ago:

Ok, here's the plan: Rainier (14,409), Adams (12,280), and Hood (11,250) in 24hrs. Possible or nuts or both? Brett Yost and I will find out tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Whoa. That's a lot of summitting innot very much time.

Yost, along with David Potter, is the current record holder of the "Five Peak Traverse," a project that includes summitting Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and South, Middle and North Sister.

From Potter and Yost did the route in 12hrs, 47min on Sept. 12, 2011, beating the previous record held by Max King, Mitch Thompson and Dave Clark by around 3.5 hours.

So King is in good company it seems. If anyone can do this, these two can. It's unknown if this three summit/24hrs challenge has ever been completed before. We're psyched to hear how this goes.
