Pushed pretty hard to get the sub 2 but this can definitely go much lower, however, it is deceivingly difficult.
Some things that might be helpful to know.
The first 1.5 miles is brutally steep and also loose, hard to go up, and tough to go down.
The start and endpoint are in an area where a lot of people go to shoot guns so wear bright colors and maybe avoid evenings.
It's a beautiful brutal route that is definitely worth doing, thanks to Laura for putting up the route!
