Wow, this went so much faster without swaths of tourists, tired legs, trying to film, wrong turns, and heat. Followed some of Juan’s GPX which eliminated some wrong turns. Had small detours for trail work on the loop near the curry village and above camp 4. Otherwise, I think this was a really clean run of it :) oh and there was some winter burns I had to bounce around back near the Pohono Bridge. I suppose it is worth mentioning there were some fresh trees down across the trail in various places but negligible effect on time.

A few photos on Strava.
