Hiking Colby Pass - Trans-Sierra Xtreme Challenge - Mt. Whitney Hike

Co-founders of Trans-Sierra Xtreme (TSX) Challenge, Chris Casado and Mike Murphy are passionate about exploring the Sierra backcountry. They’ve spent countless summers camping in secluded lakes basins, crossing high alpine passes, following rushing rivers, and climbing majestic peaks. Join Chris for a digital presentation and 2014 recap of their favorite trans-Sierra adventure, a week-long 75-mile journey across remote sections of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,505 feet). Learn the nuts and bolts of preparing for a multi-day backcountry trek including gear, permits, weather and safety considerations. Since 1983 this trek has inspired 100s. Find out how motivated individuals of all ages can safely and confidently venture into the rugged beauty and tranquility of the Sierra.
