Vitaliy Musiyenko on Conquering Goliath Traverse in 8 Days

I’m just hoping it won’t make me a statistic,” says Vitaliy Musiyenko from across my dinner table in Mariposa, CA, just outside Yosemite National Park. The 35-year-old climber is referring to his voracious passion for doing new routes and ropeless climbs in the nearby Sierra Nevada range, while performing endurance feats and Fastest Known Times (FKTs) that boggle the mind. Musiyenko’s magnum opus is the Goliath Traverse, aka “the Goliath,” an endurance climb so over-the-top that he actually had to coin the name Goliath himself.

Summer Travel from A to Z

A Roughing it not required: In 2019, AutoCamp opened its second Northern California Airstream hotel in the town of Midpines, about 26 miles from Yosemite National Park’s Arch Rock entrance (the first regional spot is located in Guerneville on the Russian River). Merging nostalgia with modern amenities, AutoCamp Yosemite’s fleet of 81 gleaming, 31-foot-long silver bullets is custom-built in super comfortable fashion with everything you’d expect to find in a four-star hotel room, from a marshmallowy queen bed to bath products from popular natural skincare line Ursa Major. (AutoCamp also offers other accommodations like glamping tents and cabins.) At the General Store inside the 4,000-square-foot clubhouse, the peckish can pick up snacks like sriracha-flavored Hippeas and New York-based Milk Bar’s cult-favorite Compost Cookies, but since no camping experience is complete without an eyebrow-singeing effort to cook over smoldering embers, DIY barbecue meal kits are also available—each trailer comes with a private outdoor fire ring.
