We had a great time at the 2016 Six-Pack of Peaks Finisher’s Party. We swapped tales from the trail; worked on a different kind of “six-pack” challenge; gave away some great gear; ate copious amounts of tacos; and generally had a blast.
Here are just a few of the highlights.

This celebration wouldn’t have been possible without the many people who volunteered and helped make it happen. Thanks to event photographer Sean Villaruz for capturing these great moments.
Thanks to SoCal hiker Duncan Simms and the good folks at Oak Creek Golf Club for providing a great venue.
Thanks to Kristin Seiler for her top-notch event coordination. She did an excellent job of keeping us all on track.
Thanks to Jae Bundang and Jason Sudo for behind-the-scenes support as well as Stacy Kerr for helping everyone get checked in.
Thanks to our volunteers who helped man the swag table, coordinate the games and the activities, helped with the setup and the raffle drawings (in no particular order): Kathleen Miller, Raya Greenbaum, Mireya Vela, Carisa and Paul Hernandez, and Francine and Steve Avellaneda.
Special thanks to Ben Gipson from Big City Mountaineers for sharing their story, and to Jason Fitzpatrick from The Muir Project for screening NOATAK: Return to the Arctic.
Most of all, thanks to all of the 2017 Six-Pack of Peaks Challengers and our 2016 Finishers! You are an inspiration to me and to many, many others.
Hope to see you all next year!
