For the first time ever, we put FKT of the Year nominations in your hands. You, the community, decided which athletes put down efforts on routes of all lengths and with all degrees of support that deserve to be in contention for FKT of the Year. Our panel voted from that list, and host Heather Anderson is here to announce the top 10 winners.
While we awarded honors to five men and five women, we took efforts from athletes of all genders into consideration, as well as efforts by teams.
Needless to say, the competition was exceedingly steep this year. Perhaps the stiffest ever? Comparing efforts on routes spanning from under an hour to several months, across the globe, and in all styles is inherently a near-impossible task. We are blown away by you all!
Tune in to hear Heather count down the winners, and to get insight, analysis, and stories from some of the athletes honored. Congratulations to all of our winners, nominees, athletes who set FKTs, and athletes who attempted FKTs. And thank you all for being part of and supporting our vibrant, tenacious community. You all inspire us! Cheers to an incredible year.
