    Actually, both examples I mention ARE the original six. @roppelaar was the first to hike all six in six days, and about a week later, @rx4sudo and @jae-bundang did them in under 48 hours.

    What makes the sub-48 hour record so notable is that they didn't do the six in the most efficient order. They first wanted to complete the 24-hour 3-Saints Challenge (San Antonio, San Jacinto and San Gorgonio) because they were pretty sure they could do that, but weren't certain about the full six peaks. So they ended up doing a lot of extra driving to backtrack.
