I set out at 5:17am on September 3rd to set a new women’s unsupported Olympic Grand Loop FKT. Hot day, so it was crucial to stay on top of nutrition and hydration. Carried supplies in case of an emergency that might require being in the backcountry for an extended period of time. Highly recommend that anyone attempting be prepared due to the remote nature of this route. Very happy that the day went well and I broke the previous record by a little under 5hrs. Kudos to Steph for setting the benchmark for other women to attempt this awesome route.
