Let's do this
This rucking challenge is all about elevation gain. Find a mountain and ruck to the summit.
Don't have a mountain, pick a mountain from the list below and track your elevation gains over the course of the month to reach the summit and earn your patch!
For all of you cursed to live where there is no elevation gain, find some stairs and start gaining some elevation. Sorry, not sorry.
Mount Rainer - 14,409'
Mount Washington - 6,289'
Sutter Butes - 2,122'
Woodall Mountain - 806'
(Or, pick your own mountain.)
Can be done all-at-once or over several rucks for the taller mountains.
