Do you have what it takes

To Everest ?

1 Mountain - 17 Climbs - 29029 Feet

Oct 13 - 15

Stratton, VT

If you like challenges. If you like adventure. If you like doing the extraordinary. If you want to build your life resume and see what the f#ck you’re made of.

This is for you.

What if Mt. Everest and 29029 vertical feet came to you? 

We rented Stratton Mountain, the whole damn mountain, for a weekend in October.  We’re building a base camp village with bands, bonfires, food and drink. All participants sleep in tipi style tents with actual beds and heaters. It is “Burning Man” meets “Ironman”.

Here’s the challenge..

Run/walk/crawl up the mountain. Take the gondola down. Repeat. 17 times. Until you climb 29029 feet…EVEREST.

On October 13th-15th, were bringing the world’s hardest climb….to YOU.

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves

I feel most alive when I’m challenged…when i’m pushed..when I’m forced to see what I’m made of. Not when I’m sitting on the sidelines.

Every day you’re faced with a choice:

Will you exist or will you truly live?

29029 is for those who want to live. Those who believe challenging things change us. And that life’s greatest obstacles reveal what you’re really made of.

29029 is more than an event. It’s a dare. A test of will. A life experience only a few will have. It’s a Vermont mountain asking you to climb it. 17 times.

I have a quote that lives on my wall at home. A constant reminder to me to GO NOW when I’m on the fence of doing something HARD. “Because in the end you won’t remember the time you spent in the office or mowing the lawn”.

Come climb the goddamn mountain.

The average person has about 3,900 weekends in their lifetime. How do you want to spend yours?


You have



left to challenge yourself.
