You must be entirely self-supported and self-contained. Take everything you need, and leave nothing behind but footprints. Any pre-planned assistance of any kind is forbidden.
Any form of human-powered locomotion is allowed within the identified course area. No linear travel on the surface of paved roads.
You are responsible for you. Come prepared for challenging conditions which can easily, with improper luck or preparation, turn life-threatening. Any and all contingency and emergency plans must be arranged in advance by each individual.
Should prove to be a challenging and rewarding route. Let the planning/training/day dreaming begin :)Oct 23, 2019 at 1:48 pm #3615343

That final section of the Sun is either going to have me sitting in a boat wondering if it was worth hauling it over the mountains, or slogging along the trail wishing I had a boat. Now to spend the next few months second guessing myself…Oct 27, 2019 at 4:19 pm #3616042

I doubt it’ll work with most people’s routes, but if anyone wants to paddle meadow creek gorge with me I’ll carry your drysuit over the swan range :) I’d like to give it a shot as long as the SF is below 8-10k, but it probably wants a partner. I’d sure like someone with a throw rope at the bottom of Thor’s Hammer.
