Everest Challenge Climbs — Glacier Lodge
Glacier Lodge ==> 7800'
9 miles long, average grade 8%, max. grade 12%, elevation gain 3900'
This is the most psychologically difficult climb of the race. The effects of Day 1 are still there, and as you creak your way up this climb, there are long straight stretches that just seem to climb and climb as far as the eye can see. Stick with it and things get better about 3/4 of the way up.
