This week I've been in a naming frenzy, as my local running trails have been enlarged due to the work of bulldozers that fought the Cocos fire. As a result, new trails were created and new trails need names.
|The packet of inspiration|
As a result, the Ibex affords the opportunity for the runner to do what I have christened the "Cinco Loco" or stealing from Princess Bride, "The Five Peaks of Insanity".
Cinco Loco starts at the the beginning of Jeep Trail at Questhaven. It then climbs Frank's Peak, Mt. Whitney, Mt. Tapatio, Double Peak and and ends at Radio Tower. I attempted the run today, but had to pack it in at about three and a half peaks. The four hours of yard work before the run probably didn't help. Once I decided to pack it in, I took Secret Trail, rather than the trail that takes you up the back side of Double Peak to the amphitheater. (I'm not sure of the name).
Regardless, here is a portion of the uncompleted run, coming in at 2,850' of gain: http://www.strava.com/activities/145964113. I'm guessing the entire run will be close to 4,000'. If I can actually finish it, I'll post the route. In the meantime, take the Cinco Loco Challenge and let me know if you finish it.
