Needles 50k will be fat-ass style. One burly, beautiful loop connecting Domerie Divide, Thomas Mtn, French Cabin Mtn, Little Joe Lake, Thorp Mtn, Kachess Ridge (aka The Cardiac Needles), and Silver Creek. This course is tough. About 10,000' of climb. Due to access, there will only be 2 limited aid stations. Think graduate level fat-ass.
