Has anyone been following Jason Hardrath's FKT (fastest known time) of the bulger list? He's somewhere around 36 days and 68 peaks in. A truly monumental effort and fun to follow along via instagram. He's said it a few times but the logistics are more challenging than the climbing.

Yes I have been following him a lot. I gave him quite a bit of beta too. He's about 90 down so should finish soon. Truly amazing accomplishment.

It's just about a done deal at this point.  Jason just has St Helens and Adams to go, so basically a couple casual day hikes, or one full day.  His journey has been pretty incredible to follow, I'm surprised it hasn't received more buzz here.  His month of July tallied 463.44 miles with 222,900 ft elevation gain.  He should finish in the next day or two.

I have been following since the start.  Helped out with a ride for Ashley.  This has been an incredible journey to follow!

I know it's a dangerous thing to say but...this record will stand for a long time.

I think I did see that unfortunately the St Helens permits will force him to wait a few days to finish, but it will still be a very impressive time.

They reached out looking for an earlier permit. I haven't heard a recent request so maybe they got one.

Nope, just St Helens.  He did the Rainier and Little Tahoma yesterday and Adams today.

Yes, I kind of wondered about that, Monique.

I do a lot of things absent- mindedly, but I don't remember at all posting what I am quoted here. Turns out I didn't.
The wonders and mysteries of the electronic age jump out again.
