Fuji Challenge article in the Stars and Stripes

From FujiClimb.com

Last year, two climbers (Jeff De Groot and Doug Szwarc) climbed Mt. Fuji 3 time in one day in order to raise money for the Shunkou Gakuen Orphanage. The trip spanned 23 hours and 38 minutes while raising nearly $4500 for the orphanage. The money was used to purchase the orphanage 8 bikes, an industrial washing machine, a DVD projector system, as well as over 20 DVDs for the kids. It made us feel great to visit the orphanage recently and see the kids pedaling around on the bikes – the amount of enthusiasm from last year’s climb was phenomenal and we hope we can match it this year!

…….

This year there will be four climbers — Rob Lovern, Doug Szwarc, Luke Nelson, and Mike Raney. We will be starting from the 5th station (2305 meters) of Mt. Fuji, making 4 full round trips to the summit (3776 meters) and back. This will equate to climbing 5884 meters (19,304 feet) up and subsequently 5884 meters down (i.e. effectively climbing up and then down a 5884 meter mountain in one day). This is equivalent to climbing up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro in one day, or 10,000 feet short of climbing Mt. Everest in one day.
