Ascent Trip ReportClimbed as part of the 2016 Mt Grant Challenge. Major props to the Lion's Club, SOC, and volunteers for a fantastic job organizing this event. You definitely didn't need to bring your own food or water to this event because you can refuel every few miles from the aid stations.
This year had a little over 80 registrants, some of whom register as a way of contributing a donation with no intention to hike; I counted around 40 actually standing at the trailhead at trail start. Only about a dozen of us were in it for the full Monty.
0.0mi: Begin from Hwy 96
7.0mi: Camp Dixie Sign
