Luke DeMuth and Junaid Dawud, the friends who 71 days ago started walking up Culebra Peak in southern Colorado’s Sangre de Christo Mountains, reached the summit of Longs Peak at dusk on Sunday.
The Longs climb marked the 58th 14,000-foot peak for the duo, who have walked more than 1,300 miles and climbed almost 300,000 vertical feet as they hiked to every fourteener in the state and climbed each peak.
“Yah! Was windy as hell. Still walking out now,” texted DeMuth at 7:45 pm Sunday.
