Woo! Going to run this tomorrow morning. Trail conditions are pretty good for mid July since it has been so toasty, so that should be a plus! 

Yo! Going to attempt both the ascent and car to car records on Saturday October 7th. Weather looks alright and I'm hoping the recent rain made the trail a little more packed. I heard rumors of a chunk falling off the crawl in the last few weeks that supposedly makes the climbing more difficult. I will try to verify if this is true or not. Wish me luck on my first FKT! Stoked for my third time up this rugged beauty.
