On Nov. 4, 2016, Hugh MacMullan attempted the Batona out & back, but failed to complete the distance. He claimed the self-supported one-way FKT of 13h05m50s, and reported as follows:
"Well, the short story: I only managed the one way overnight, after adding a few too many turn misses. But I guess I got the self-supported one way FKT in 13:05:50!
It was still a lot of fun, and I'll be on the Batona Trail again soon.
So your FKT still stands, Denis! I'll get you yet! "
