Note Liam went northbound. While we have not tracked FKTs separately for the different directions on this route, Liam's is the fastest northbound traverse we're aware of to date. Regional Editor note: starting March 2021 we started differentiating NOBO vs. SOBO FKT's on the Presi Traverse. Plus very close to the overall FKT of Malcolm Groves, who did not summit Clay. Liam's time is fastest with summiting Clay.
"I don't know if there has ever been a distinction on here between a northbound presi and a southbound presi, but I ran a northbound traverse in 4:28:12 and figured it could be neat to start a category for that direction, since the run has a very different feel to it. I left from Crawford Notch and finished at the Valley Way trail head."
