Glutton for Punishment: The Mount Ord Climb

What can I say? I love climbing. Ok, well maybe love is a strong word, but I thoroughly enjoy climbing. Just not racing and climbing. I haven’t worked those two into a good relationship yet, but I’m getting there.

So today me and a few other mountain bikers (read: crazy people) from Fountain Hills took off for Mount Ord. It was 5.75 miles to the top and took over an hour. That’s right, an hour of going straight up.

Update: Doh… Forgot to mention that I have a Google Earth rendering of the climb here.
