Tough Mudder obstacle #18- Everest

Kev took this picture after we finished the course.  I think it gives a pretty good perspective on how big the quarter pipe was.  This was one we were anticipating because we watched people try it while we waiting in line to start.  DCIM100GOPRO

I don’t think any of us have ever tried to run up a 10 foot high quarter pipe, but we could tell it would be important to make the right choice about when to stop running and when to jump.Everest 1

This is what it looks like from the starting point.  We didn’t have to wait in line at this obstacle, so Reed took off and got up it easily.  Craig, Ryan and I followed, and we got up without any problem.  Kev was last, and he went so high he got his chest over it.  The staff will hose the obstacle down at some venues, but they didn’t here.  I don’t think I could have gotten up this by myself if it had been wet.  It was a good confidence boost for the final test.Everest 2
