The following year, July 22-26, 2016, Monforte smashed her own women's unsupported FKT by about 19 hours, completing the trail in 4d5h6m (4d1h13m from the summit), as reported below. Monforte again used a Delorme satellite tracker for verification (and safety).

Hi again,

I finished up a magical trip on the JMT yesterday and have been busy enjoying sleeping and the best pizza ever. Trailhead to trailhead time was 4 days 5 hours and 6 minutes. JMT time was 4 days 1 hour 13 minutes. I'll get a trip report out in the next week. I wasn't aiming to go this fast when I started out but felt good most of the time until my feet fell apart during the last 24 hours. Right now it's time to eat and go back to sleep.

Here is a trip report. I'll get a gear report out shortly
