#42 | A Record Attempt in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks with 46 Climbs Co-Founder Kolby Ziemendorf

August 27th, 2019

46 Climbs co-founder Kolby Ziemendorf is back on the show to talk about his recent attempt to break the record for hiking the most High Peaks in the Adirondacks in 24 hours. Unfortunately, the attempt did not work out, and we talk all about what happened. We also cover some of his preparation for taking on such a daunting hiking challenge, the record fund-raising year that 46 Climbs is having, and we even touch on how he will be thru-hiking the Northville-Placid Trail in just a few weeks. Kolby has hiked all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks, and has intimate knowledge of the Adirondacks. It's always a pleasure to chat with him, and I am sure he will come back on in the future!
