The climb includes everything from mountain lakes and streams to winding trails through meadows of wildflowers and ends with a 1,500 vertical scramble (suffer) through boulders and shale to the top of the mountain.  In her first Hyndman Suffer Fest, Jennifer Ludington reached the summit in 2:16, placing third place for women.
