Ascent Trip Report

The never summer 100k went up and over north diamond. The climb was as hard as I've done in a race environment, going straight up the spine of the mountain. There were points where I had to crawl on all fours. Made 40 miles (20 of which was after this ascent) of the 100k before I had to call it quits. Awesome race in an awesome place, though.
