Guess my vertical and win a pair of Rudy Project sunglasses

 I have boxes of stuff from being sponsored for years and I'm too lazy to e-bay everything so I'm going to give away a pair of Rudy Project sunglasses if you can guess the elevation gain (within 10 feet) from my workout today:


Since the glasses are brand new and still sealed in plastic and worth ~$180 I'm not going to give any clues. No distance or time. And you'll have your choice between the glasses below, both come with a hard case and an extra set of red lenses. One guess per person and the first person within 10 feet of the total elevation gain from the workout. Contest ends tomorrow at 5pm MST. After it ends I'll post a picture of the total.

GZ- Actually I started out by my shed and finished at my front door. There's a ~4-5 ft elevation difference.

6000 . big day...

Lucho said...

And just for reassurance... I WILL give away one (or both) of these pairs of sunglasses so if no one guesses correctly then there will be other contests to follow, this is a hell of a lot more fun than watching an e-bay auction!

Calculating that was the most exercise I have had in awhile...I had to take 3 gels before I was done.

Thomas said...

4720. But you don't have to send stuff across the Big Pond even in the unlikely event of me being right.

My guestimaate was for up and down. If you were asking for just climbing distance then my guess was 9,800/2=4,900.
