Fool's Traverse 2018 (San Gabriel Mountain Range) | TRVRS APPAREL

"The Fool is the experience of the journey. 
The path of in between, a place of abstraction, 
indescribable and inconceivable, a place of unlimited potential. 

He is the journey between decision and the first explosion of movement. He never leaves this abstract realm. 
He never falls or fails, despite the cliff edge opening over a bottomless gulf. 

Wherever the Fool goes, the ground rises to meet him. His steps create the universe. 

He is the reminder that life is about the journey, 
about taking the first step, 
not the destination." 

The Fool’s Traverse is a challenging endurance event hosted by TRVRS Apparel and created to promote a safer hiking experience while raising awareness for outdoor stewardship throughout our public lands. The event consists of 11 checkpoints within the Mt Baldy area of which participants will need to strategically navigate to as many checkpoints as they are physically capable in order to increase eligibility to win prizes from our sponsors.

The 11 markers are located almost completely above 8,000 feet  and the trails that connect them feature scenic views as well as drastic elevation change. The terrain encountered combines easy dirt paths, with sections of technical class-2 granite, and some steep talus fields. Its participants will be rewarded with stunning views of the Sheep Mountain Wilderness, the Angeles National Forest, and the Cucamonga Wilderness territories.
