Great day in the mountains. Rained the day before and trail was damp, but it provided great bite for the shoes. Took the advice from previous FKT holder Angela Legg to do Vly first and I agree with the improved flow. 

Note: In the description for this route it says the summit is in the second clearing. The summit on the map is a very short herd path before the first clearing. I went to both on this FKT, however, I feel the FKT in the future should go to the true summit, which is a higher point.
