Details

In 2016, Maddie Miller alongside mentor and professional climber, Melissa Arnot, set out to complete the 50 US highpoints in 50 days. Starting with the summit of Denali as day 1, the team flew to Florida, where they began the crazy lower 48 roadtrip to each state’s highest point.  After days of discomfort, van life, no sleep, and logistical challenges, Maddie made it to her final summit of Mauna Kea in 41 days, 16 hours, and 10 minutes, breaking the world record for fastest completion of the 50 US highpoints. Hear her journey of adaptability, adversity, and growth, along the wild, incredibly insane, but totally fun, 50 states adventure.
