Our youngest Trans-Sierra Xtreme Challenge participant this season was 12 year old writer, musician, producer and all-around great kid Dylan Reiss. Not only was the week long adventure quality time spent with dad, but when you’re 12 years old and hike 55 miles across the Sierra to the summit of Mt. Whitney, you realize you can do anything you put your mind to. We have no doubt Dylan will move on to do great things in life. Thank you for sharing your summer with us Dylan and dad, and for sharing your budding talents and sense of humor with this video production! Click play above to watch 14,508, (Official Movie).
