Paint The M

Thanks to the NM Tech 49'rs committee and EMRTC for another fun climb to the top of Socorro Peak on Sunday. This year's race was even bigger, with over 110 making the 2300'+ climb over rocks, bushes, cactus, and snakes on the 45-degree slopes of the mountain. After the race, climbers were treated to a cookout on top of the mountain before being driven back to the Tech campus.

A cash prize of $50 was awarded to the first 20 climbers carrying 50 lbs of lime. Christian Krueger was the first to reach the M with lime, and Laura Wilcox was the first female (and 4th overall). Kim Schaffer repeated her 2nd place overall performance of last year, finishing in about 53 minutes. Other SSR members making the climb included Robert Abernathy, Matt Perini, Addy Bhasker, and Nathan Heronen.
