We have our second Bagger Challenge Compleatist this year.
Only he did all of the peaks in a single year: staggering.
57 peaks in the 204 days of the Bagger Challenge: staggering.
With his bag of NNE and MNE, Ean Jackson joined the ranked of the Compleatists, who have bagged all 57 of the listed Bagger Challenge Peaks: a glorious and delicious accomplishment.
Only two others have achieved this feat; several others are approaching.
Five short companions and I conquered Suicide Bluffs, the newest addition to the Bagger Challenge.
Although not marked on official Mt Seymour trailposts, and cautioned on various maps as an "undeveloped route", the route is easy to find.
features many trails, and the most peak names of any published map.
Alas, no Fat Ass Peak yet.
I picked mine up at the dandy new North Shore MEC.
For those who have run the Grand Canyon, West Coast Trail, and TransZion run, and are looking for the next epic trail running adventure, the 93-odd-mile Wonderland Trail around majestic Mt Rainier is a must-do stunner.
For baggers keen to explore other nearby trails, Dick Culbert has sent in this very cool trail development on the Sunshine Coast:
A well marked trail system trail system has now been established from the Langdale Ferry Terminal on the Sunshine Coast to the summit of Mt. Elphinstone.
Bagger Challenge is now generally open. All peaks on the list are open for baggage points.
Persevere. Bag. Jubilate.
Still snow on many peaks: be careful out there! Bring proper equipment. Always bag with a buddy.
