GORUCK Ascent 2011

The Ascent is an epic adventure spread out over 100+ hours in and around Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Teams will spend time in cities, time in the mountains, and time moving from one to the other. Bonfires (aka Ranger TV) with beers in hand are also a priority. Though the Ascent is a team-based event, just like the GORUCK Challenge, it is not a GORUCK Challenge. Climbing one 14,000-foot mountain is a challenge unto itself. Climbing multiple 14ers over 4+ days will be difficult, not to mention that the Ascent is mission driven and based on the culminating exercise all Special Forces soldiers must pass to earn their Green Berets. Due to the difficulty and our assumption that everyone understands the priority we place on teamwork, only those who have successfully passed a GORUCK Challenge will be eligible to participate.

The Ascent is also an opportunity to gain insight into how America trains its most elite soldiers. Throughout the Ascent, Green Berets will teach multiple classes, including:

  • Mission planning and preparation
  • Land navigation/GPS/map reading
  • Survival (hunter/gatherer stuff)
  • Medical (field expedient and emergency based)

Start Date Thursday, September 01, 2011
End Date Sunday, September 04, 2011
