Heading off of Antero with one more (modest) climb to go and sweet cruiser trail from Shavano to the TH. Looking solid!

Headed off Shav. Just down to the cabin now unless he's still drinking champagne on the summit

Amazing! My imperfect math says new Southbound FKT - thanks for checking/confirming the math! Using Cthulhu 2008's reported finish of 4:43 MDT (6:43 EDT):

Dave: Rough/approx: 53:52 Shavano/55:38 Blank TH; Past Men's Southbound FKT 54:47 Shavano/56:19 Blank TH (Northbound FKT 52:42 Massive, 54:57 Fish TH)

If this is accurate, approx 41 minutes faster to Blank TH than prev Southbound FKT.
