Nick dropped the record by about twenty minutes yesterday and finished it in 6:30:49. The traverse is (car to car) Teewinot, Mount Owen, the Grand, Middle, South, Cloudveil Dome, and Nez Pierce. Blows my mind what people are accomplishing these days.

That is beyond insane... heck it takes a lot of folks 6 hrs to just get to the lower saddle.....

How it took me two days to see this I'll never know nor understand.

I am pretty sure it took us that long to drive the highway along the traverse...

I was barely on the backside of Teewinot in that time.

Once I bag Owen...17+ years for my speed attempt.
Impressive time...might bring Rolando back to USA...then Ueli.
