Hello all. Anyone know of the speed record for Huron Peak in Colorado? I'd found a record on Bill Wright's website (http://www.wwwright.com/climbing/speed/colorado14ers.htm) stating Dan Hudspeth did it in 2:17:00 with 15 minutes spent at the top. I had recently broken that on 7/29/2012 with a time of 2:07:16 with no time spent at the summit. Now that leads me to my next question, if Dan's time is the current speed record, would my "FKT" count considering his actual moving time would still be 2 minutes faster than mine? I did Huron with only the intention of breaking my PR so I couldn't follow the advice given in the "Read This First" section of this site. I have no pics, and no one to watch. All I have is the GarminConnect link below showing that I had done it. Elevation is a bit off because I didn't calibrate it before I left, but map shows exactly where I started and getting the summit. I appreciate all your thoughts and comments! Thankyou! connect.garmin.com/activity/204563974

I figured I would put this out there even though it probably doesn't count for much. Today I climbed Huron from the Winfield 4WD TH in 1:11:34 and descended back to the TH in 43:12. Combined, this is a time of 1:54:48. Unfortunately, I spent some time at the summit waiting for other members in my group, and I timed myself using a Suunto watch without GPS.

This morning I did Huron again with some friends. I started from the edge of the road where the trail diverges, this time with my Garmin Edge 500 bike computer for verification. I hit the top at 1:06:52, spent 89 seconds on the summit, and took 41:14 to get back down. Total, this is 1:49:35 round trip. So far, I can find no one (online at least) who has done it faster. I also checked Anton Krupicka's blog, and I can't find any mention of him doing Huron as an out and back. It seems like he only did it once (over the top and down the other side) for Nolan's 14 recon, and then again when he did Nolan's 14. So, I believe I have the FKT with 1:49:35.
Here is a link to the activity on Garmin: connect.garmin.com/activity/365222054. As usual, the altitude is off (even with GPS correction on), but the map shows me clearly at the top. The times on Garmin Connect are slightly off the splits reported above since I used my watch (Suunto Core) for the real times (I had to get my Garmin out of my vest to hit the lap/stop buttons).
