On Saturday, May 7, I climbed my third official High Peak with my dad, Steve, my brother, Charlie, and friend, Emily. We drove up to Lake Placid on Friday night and stayed in a hotel room to get an early start the next morning.
I wore my FitBit Surge for this hike to record data and use as a reference for time. Using GPS for so long wore the battery out so the FitBit was dead from 5:30-6:30 while being charged with Charlie's portable charger. I created the below map using the FitBit's recordings.
