“Oh, I said, ‘Hell yes’ ... Actually this is something I’ve been hoping to do,” Grant says. “My grandfather was in the 10th Mountain Division. He used to climb up Marcy for breakfast. I feel like I’m in my element, I just never had gotten here before.”
Grant says that this expedition “was a life-changing day of being tested on every level,” and that she has Hamilton to thank for fueling her love of the outdoors and athletics.
