Denali Waits For No Man…

We’d like to dedicate tonight’s post to CrossFit  West stud Patrick Chu (aka the Adventure Out intern).  Patrick will be hopping on a plane this Tuesday to fly to Alaska and begin his ascent of Mt. McKinley.  All joking aside (because believe me, we give Patrick a LOT of s%&t): good luck buddy.  McKinley is no joke – she’s high, she’s cold, she’s dangerous, and she will test the skill, strength, and endurance of any man or woman that dares attempt to conquer her ascent.  We all wish you a safe journey and speedy return.  Be smart up there brother – we look forward to hearing your stories and training with you when you get back.

You can follow Patrick’s journey here at his expedition company’s blog. Patrick will be on the trip guided by Mike Haugen and Elías de Andrés-Martos – so look for their name in the subject header starting next week to identify Patrick’s team.

Make us proud Patrick!
