CLIMBER COMPETING AT THE 24 HOURS OF HORSESHOE HELL. JOSH BEECHER

24 hours of Horseshoe Hell (24HHH) is the wildest event in the climbing world; a mash-up of ultramarathon and Burning Man where elite climbers and gumbies alike go for broke in a sun-up to sun-down orgy of lactic acid and beer. But all fun aside, the competition is real: Can the team of Nik Berry and Mason Earle stand up against the all-powerful Alex Honnold?
