Peak Power

Hashimoto, an endurance athlete based in Ellensburg, Washington, dreamed up a grand adventure this past summer: climb 100 of the tallest peaks in Washington—known as “Bulger 100”—in a single season using only human power. He and 23-year-old Langdon Ernest-Beck, his next-door neighbor, accomplished this together over the course of several weekends in summer 2023.

Outside magazine wrote about the feat in January 2024:

The idea for a human-powered adventure was Hashimoto’s. At 52, he has spent much of his life in the mountains, and, like most people, has often burned fossil fuels to access them. With this trip, he hoped to plan a trek that “left no trace in the atmosphere.” In 2022, he scouted the route and began planning the trip.

The metrics for the proposed route were dizzying: 1,900 miles of cycling, 835 miles of hiking, and nearly 500,000 total feet of elevation gain to climb the 100 mountains.

Uhuru Hashimoto ’23 joined the pair for about half of the bike rides and climbs.
