It's been called the "most unique mountaineering route in the world" and also one of the "toughest mountaineering routes in the lower 48 U.S. states" and it's no wonder - this route gains more than 11,300 feet over about 15 miles. The route starts at Shorty's Well (elevation: 262 ft. below sea level) and culminates at the summit of Telescope Peak (elevation: 11,049 ft.), which also happens to be the highest point in Death Valley. In this episode of IIAWT, Chris and Matt spend an hour talking about a recent expedition in which they attempted this very route.
