Are you familiar with Colorado's Manitou Incline? Let me tell you, it's a thigh burner. It's a monster. Well, the gentlemen above is about to tie a record.
He's Made This Colorado Climb How Many Times?

What's His Goal for 2021?
Christl has a goal in mind for the year. If all goes according to plan, he will climb Manitou Incline a total of 1,000 times in 2021.
It's Been Done Before

Special Technique When Descending Colorado's Manitou Incline
Word on the street is Christl is a super-nice guy and likes to chit-chat. Somehow I've never encountered him when hiking the Incline. How do I know I've never seen him? Well, from what I hear, he likes to walk back down the Incline.
If you run into Christl be sure to cheer him on. I climb Manitou Incline once per year, always on my birthday, and let me tell you, it's a killer. In my mind, conquering this mountain once a year is an achievement. The thought of climbing it two to three times per day is inconceivable.
