Trip: Mt St Helens - Worm Flows Speed Attempt (1:36 up, 2:49 c2c)

Date: 9/21/2015

Trip Report:
Peter and I gave the worm flows route a speed jab today with a mix of running and power hiking under mostly sunny skies. We went parking lot to summit 1:35:47. Car to Car 2:49:58. 10.4 mi, 5600′. I can't find any information on a St Helens climb FKT. Any information appreciated.

It would be hard to find this much steep gravel anywhere closer to Portland. Recommended for the fast and the stupid.



Gear Notes:
S-Labs and ultra vests to look as fast as possible.

Approach Notes:
The road signs are currently covered with tarps.

I didn't know they made sports bras for men.

I can't argue with the time they produce though!

I wasn't sure if that was a woman at first.

That's Peter's highly functional but less-than-pretty ultra vest without a shirt tactic.

I probably should have read the blog post. An "ultra vest", who knew!

Dudes in sports bras are aid.

It's unethical support.
