Nolan's 14

I want to run Nolan's 14. I have for about four years now. This came to my attention, or I discovered it, at least by 2010 as I was getting into mountain running. This also has meaning for me because Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive are two mountains that in 2002 and 2003 shaped the trajectory of my mountaineering career. It's not an easy hike. Simply navigating could be an issue.

Anton Krupicka tried to do it last year in under 30 hours, which would have dramatically beaten the 55 hour best time. However, I think he suffered from lack of sleep. He did post some great times for what he did do. I have thought for sometime that it could be done in under 48 hours, that would mean only one sleep session.

So my intentions are out there. When will I try it? I am not sure, but it would be fun this summer.
