Report

I hiked the route on the 30th, looking at the scenery and taking 100 or so photos.  The next day, Jason Hardrath made me aware that there was a (long-established) FKT for the route, so I had to try while I was in the area.  I'm glad I had hiked it beforehand, because the footing is uneven enough that I was mostly staring at my feet through the slot canyon.  I made the Paria in about 2:11, and knew I was nowhere near fast enough to go sub-3:00, but I still believe an actual runner could do it.
